Blanket Fort: A Comedy Variety Show in a Blanket Fort

7:00 PM

All proceeds from this show will be donated to Big Brothers Big Sisters.

Blanket Fort is an all new variety show that takes place entirely inside of a giant blanket fort (Just like the name implies! Are you surprised!) Every second Sunday of the month we’ll curate a comfy and wack-a-doo atmosphere for your absolute amusement and nothing like you’ve ever seen before. For our very first show we’ve got a killer lineup: improv, sketch, POLKA MUSIC (!!!!), stand-up, and other seriously messed up bonkers junk you probably won’t even believe. So stick around, wear some PJ’s and BYOP (Bring Your Own Pillow, nerd) because Blanket Fort will be the silliest way to end your freakin’ weekend.

Stick around after Blanket Fort for Bedtime with the Slugs, a sketch and improv show with Chicago’s tallest improv team, Bedtime Slugs, and their favorite guests. Feel like getting on stage and improvising yourself? Hell yeah, there’s a jam at the end.
