On January 16, 1919 Prohibition was signed into law - ushering in an era of gangsters, bootleggers, and scoundrels that have influenced our nations culture. This January, ComedySportz Chicago plans to celebrate.
Join us Thursday through Saturday, January 16-18, 2014 as we transform the ComedySportz Theatre into a 1920s speakeasy, complete with custom drink specials, live jazz music, photo opportunities, code words, bootleggers, and the Downtown Chicago Bosses to show you the true meaning of "Prohibition".
Come thirsty because Prohibition will have no effect in the ComedySportz Speakeasy January 16-18. Specialty Prohibition-era cocktails will be served, and there will be live jazz music provided by the Chi-town Hot Shots. Audience members who come dress in costume will receive $5 off their ticket price!
SEE the Chi-town Hot Shots play along with the West End Jazz:
All performances are appropriate for the ENTIRE family!
