Where you'll be

We'll meet at Frances' Cocktail Lounge and Grill, a 50-year-old, family-owned bar located on Chicago's south side in the Greater Grand Crossing neighborhood. Then we will settle in and listen to comedians from the NEW DEF JAM, Kevin Harts shows and other TV and Comedy environments.
The comedy you will see will be URBAN comedy at its finest. The location is a "BAR" so expect bar room humor. You will laugh

Rated 4.29 out of 5 from 7 reviews.

We arrived at the designated time and place listed in the advertisement and confirmation. The host was not present. We called him and he advised that generally nothing would be starting for another 90 minutes. We went to the bar to register as a participant for the comedy tour and asked about our included drink. They advised there was no drink included. So we paid for an event to include a drink and a show starting at 9, instead we got a dive bar (not a comedy club 'tour') with no drink included that we had paid for, no host and the event was delayed. We left instead of wasting any more of our time and money. This is a scam because I have no doubt this is a common occurrence. We would not use Airbnb experiences again.

Super authentic experience - something we would have never done by ourselves. The comedy was exceptional - had us in stitches all evening! Highly recommended!

Had a good time! We were able to experience a part of the city we hadn’t spent time in before and might never have seen without Aaron’s comedy experience

My husband and I wanted a “real” Chicago comedy experience and THIS was it. Most fear leaving the comfort of Chicago’s downtown core but the truth is some of the BEST comedians don’t start there. Aaron was amazing and the place he took us to was awesome!! We HIGHLY recommend it.

Aaron was a great host. The show featured some very funny up-and-coming comedians. Because the show is in a bar, the start time depends on the other activities that may be going on at the bar. We ended up waiting a bit, but bought some food from the rib joint next door and ate it at the bar. We had a great time!

Enjoyed the comedy show however the show really began with some of the comedians that were in the audience of the establishment. The show started around 9:30 pm and we watched five performers. Then afterwards we stop by well known late night spot known for their fried chicken. This was great activity to do on a Monday night in the CHI.
