One of Chicago's most successful comedy alums is putting his money where his mouth is - or his mouth where his money is. Jim Belushi has partnered with The Comedy Bar. Just a year old, the River North spot opened with Comedy Central's "Comics To Watch" showcase and has hosted sold out shows with the TBS Just For Laughs Festival.
The club is relaunching later this month with three days of shows October 18 - 20. Belushi will be on stage all three nights, either sharing his own stories or introducing the headliners.
