It's getting cold, which means (unless you love ice-skating around the ribbon in Maggie Daley Park or running races in crazy cold weather) it's time to find some stuff to do inside for a while. Luckily, Chicago's got plenty of indoor fun to offer, including its incredible comedy scene. Here we've got a stand-up show picked out for every day of the month - from national tours to local open mics and showcases to returning Chicagoans on their way up.
Dwayne Kennedy is a Chicago comedy legend and, according to Hari Kondabolu, "the godfather of the current Chicago comedy scene." I sat down to talk with him on Sunday night for the Chicago Tribune before the first of seven shows he's performing at Zanies this week (he has two shows tomorrow - Friday, 8/4). Check out the article for a little history and a few clips from his set Sunday night.
