We were tipped off about a weekly comedy show at Goose Island. For readers in other cities Goose Island is Chicago's most famous local craft brewery. Going here gives you the benefit of having a diverse selection of quality brewed craft beers such as Green Line Pale Ale and Nut Brown Ale as well as a terrific food menu.
The comedy show is produced by a group called Duck Duck Comedy, and admission is just $5. If that perturbs anyone, we want to stress you're not paying to see an open mic. The producers of the show are very selective and make sure every comedian performing is a seasoned veteran of the Chicago comedy scene. All comedians have rather impressive resumes including sets at Comicon, Second City, etc. Remember the next Zach Galifianakis is out there performing somewhere, and it's always great to be able to say, “Yeah I liked him before he was famous.” Not only are there standup sets by comedians but each show is concluded by a musical act for a touch of variety.
"I don't think anyone saw this coming," Jason Sudeikis said hilariously. "Quvenzhané Wallis, of course, the first African American, the first female, and first child Pope," a reporter at the scene explained.
Hart then made his debut dressed up as Wallis in her navy Giorgio Armani gown and carrying her favorite famed "puppy purse." Pope Quvenzhané then lifted her arms into her signature muscle man pose and then danced the Dougie. Hart then said, Who the man? I'm the man," in Latin.
Gotham Burlesque Coney Island Spectacular: Coney Island is invading Manhattan's Upper West Side October 6th at 10pm at The Triad. There will be twelve amazing acts from NYC's best burlesque and variety performers, including Bambi the Mermaid, The Great Fredini, Ekaterina, The Great Throwdini, Miss Harvest Moon, Scott Baker, Tigger, Justina Flash, and more! Shelly Watson will host this sultry extravaganza featuring song, dance, tricks, and plenty of treats. Tickets range from $37-$49 and can be purchased here.
Pier NYC, a new seasonal waterfront cafe, located on the West Promenade of Roosevelt Island, will be hosting Comedy on the Water August 16th at 8pm and it's free to attend with a 2 drink minimum. Stand Up NY, one of the city's oldest comedy clubs, has played host to some of the biggest names in comedy, such as Jerry Seinfeld and Jon Stewart. The venue has partnered with Pier NYC, a great spot for outdoor relaxation on the water to bring you this great event. The evening's comedians include Jonathon Randall, Mike Vecchione, Ryan Reiss, Brian McGuinness, and Kyle Grooms. Each performer has only fifteen minutes in which to make the audience roar with laughter, so be careful when eating.
The 35-year-old actress and her 32-year-old husband of 3 years, are finally going to start their own family and are expecting a child this fall. The happy couple have been candid about starting their own big brood of children, even telling mags like People that Pratt wanted a "big family" and that he wanted to be a father as soon as possible.
Faris has been quite busy lately as her movie The Dictator opens in theaters May 16. She is also currently in London filming Working Title's I Give It a Year with Rose Byrne and Simon Baker. Pratt is filming Zero Dark Thirty and we will see him in Ten Year alongside Channing Tatum this September.
We wish you all the best guys!

Dubstep is taking over Miami this December and there's plenty more to do before 2011 is over.
Suénalo, dubbed 'Miami's Best Latin Band' by the New Times, is performing at The Lucky Clover Irish Pub in Little Havana. The eclectic 9-piece group has created their own unique musical recipe of Afro-Carribean mixed with Latin and a dash of funky Jazz. The show is free this Friday, December 15th and starts at 9PM but get there early to grab a good seat (Happy hour starts at 4PM).
If you feel the ground trembling this weekend, don't freak out - it's just the deep, dirty bass of dubstep's posterchild pulsating throughout the beach. The one & only Skrillex will be performing Saturday, December 17th at 7:30 PM at the Fillmore. Tickets are expensive, but still available at StubHub. [If you haven't seen it yet, check out his nasty new video for First Of The Year (Equinox) here.]
As we enter awards season, audiences want to strip away artifice, tear down walls, and watch powerful dramas, rife with depth and emotion.
At least that's what studios seem to think.
When weather gets colder, so do the films. But comedy doesn't have to die just because red carpets are around the corner. So before you're fully surrounded by sadness and decay, consider going out -- or staying in -- for a laugh. Joonbug has compiled the top 5 comedies of 2011, and all are available for viewing right now.
Admit it. You've done this before. You're doing some simple research on the internet -- in this case, you're wondering, "why is there such a thing as a spork, but no such thing as a knork?" -- but you can't figure out what search terms to enter. Rather than futz around with quotation marks, minus signs and "advanced search" methods, you just type your question, in its barest form, into Google.
As AutoComplete works its magic, you get a rare glimpse into the soul of the internet -- Google's most popular searches. All you have to hit is "w," and the search engine will give you the weather. "Why" yields answers to well-intentioned parents, desperately trying to find answers to "why is the sky blue?" Then, this happens.
