A staple of the Chicago comedy scene for years, The Late Live Show is currently based in Los Angeles but is on hiatus at this time.
But what is The Late Live Show? Since 2010, we’ve been taking the classic late-night talk show format, giving it a contemporary sensibility, and filling it with as much comedy as we can. Here’s what you’ll get when you come see us:
- A bunch of silly and off-beat jokes
- Interviews with special guests like Paul Feig, Rich Sommer (Mad Men) and Danny Pudi (Community)
- Off-the-wall characters and sketches
Our show is brand new every week, so you’ll never see the same thing twice. Our staff features writers from The Onion News Network and Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. We’ve also been featured in Splitsider, MAXIM Magazine, DailyCandy, Huffington Post, and other press publications who have said nice things like this:
Chicago Tribune Red Eye "Extremely fun" "Best Bet"
Chicago Sun-Times "Cool Thing to Do in Chicago"
Metromix Chicago "Pick"
Chicago Reader "The Late Live Show provides an often-hilarious platform for unconventional local celebrities and bands. This is late-night geekery worth staying up for."
Time Out Chicago "…surprisingly deft and culty" "…a late-night comedy show that’s crafting big laughs and a big following thanks in part to the palpable studio vibe, engaging banter and goofball antics."
The A.V. Club "…act peppers in an underlying self-awareness and satirical edge, though, as well as that omnipresent sense of danger that comes from doing something live"
Newcity "With eccentrically dark edges, ‘The Late Live Show’ has an inspiring air of DIY ingenuity" "…delivers a quality hour of comedy."
