There's no shortage of comedy festivals around the summer time. About two years ago, news site the A.V. Club and sister site The Onion decided to throw their hat into the annualized ring. This year is no different and now the two will be joined by a major sponsor: truTV. The third iteration of the 26th Annual Comedy Festival will be in full effect starting June 1st and go until June 5th in the city that Kanye West calls home, Chicago.
Venues include big Chicago staples like the Civic Opera House and Thalia Hall. I'm sure windy city natives are getting so turned on by the mere mention of the theaters. But you're here for the acts. Tracy Morgan, Chris Gethard, Sarah Silverman, Reggie Watts & Karen and a slew of other amazing acts are on tap to perform. A lot of the tickets are on sale while bigger shows go on sale at later dates. Check out the lineup below.
