Everybody loves to laugh and there are plenty of opportunities this summer with a bunch of funny comedy shows coming to Illinois.

Illinois Comedy Is Legendary

I would put the comedy and comedians in Illinois up against anywhere else in the world. We have historic clubs and theaters where icons have cut their teeth performing to eventually become famous. Places like Zanies and The Improv. Comedians like Jim Belushi and Richard Pryor. That's very hard to top.
