If you need a good laugh but you’re short on money, “Congrats On Your Success Comedy” (CoYS) will surely have you hurting from laughter. Partnered and hosted at Uncharted Books (@UnchartedBooks, 2630 N. Milwaukee Ave.), the monthly comedy show features two hours of local comics on stage.
This past Thursday, about 25 to 30 people filled the available seats for an evening of fun; some patrons chose to stand when seats ran out. Although the show didn’t begin until 7:25 pm, there was free PBR readily available.
For the next 90 minutes, the bookstore filled with laughter. The comedians were on point with their routines and, to some extent, their vulgarity. The lineup included a number of performers: Sonia Denis (the event’s host), Goodrich Gevaart, Charlie Rohrer, Mitch Kurka, Erica Nicole Clark (Mr. T’s daughter), Christopher Condren, Saurin Choksi and Brian Babylon co- host of “The Vocalo Morning Amp” (vocalo 89.5).
If you’re free the first Thursday of every month, stop by Uncharted Books and enjoy an evening full of laughs. You won’t be disappointed. Although the monthly event is free, organizers ask for a small donation to keep the event free.
