Feminist Happy Hour: Comedy Showcase & Open Mic

  • The Whistler 2421 North Milwaukee Avenue Chicago, IL, 60647 United States (map)

It's that time again. Let's get boozy & feminist-y at one of Chicago's Best cocktail bars, The Whistler. Once again, we're turning the mic over to the funniest feminist ladies in Chicago's comedy scene. No openers, no headliners, no hierarchy. This month we cut down the features to make room for more 4 minute OPEN MIC* spots! FEATURING:

Lily Be ♥ Storyteller & host of The Stoop
Lily Be is Chicago's very own Chingona (bad ass). An accidental artist living her life of purpose. Lily exists to bring people together to own and share their stories as host and producer of The Stoop at Rosa's Lounge every last Thursday of the month. She has won some well known storytelling competitions and had been featured on podcasts and radio all over. Lily is also a Teacher at Second City where she teaches a discovering your story class. She is also an artist in residence at Free Street Theater where she is working on her one woman show that will be out in January. In short, Lily Be is magic. Check her out @Queenlilybe on everything.

Carly Oishi ♥ Storyteller & host of Miss Spoken
Carly Oishi is the co-producer of Miss Spoken, a lady live lit show that happens the last Wednesday of the month at The Gallery Cabaret. She's also the former co-producer of Solo in the 2nd City, holds a 6-1 record at Write Club and was named "Wise Woman of the Week" by WBEZ affiliate Vocalo. Currently, she's working on a collection of essays, due out in May of 2017 with CCLaP Publishing.

Rebecca O'Neal ♥ Comic
Rebecca O’Neal is a hilariously cerebral and confessional young comic whose upbringing on Chicago’s southside coupled with her love of language and tendency toward introspection endear her to audiences of all backgrounds. By humorously mining her experiences, she makes the esoteric universal.

*Open Mic: 4 minutes for anyone of any gender to perform conscious comedy. Participants will be drawn at random.
