Are you funny? Are you five minutes-worth funny? Then bring your schtick to Zanies this morning for "Stand-Up For Diversity" auditions. You'll have one minute at the audition and then a few will be invited back later that day to perform a longer set, so you'll need to have a polished five minute routine ready. The top comics will be selected to perform in the showcase tomorrow.


The free museum days continue! Today the Shedd Aquarium is free and since it's Monday there's also no charge at Chicago History Museum.


Today's Taste of TLT is brought to you by AlphaBeer! Get to know your A-Beer-C's at the only event that invites you to sample a craft brew for every letter of the alphabet. Tickets on sale now at bit.ly/tltabv


The free concert series "Downtown Sound - New Music Mondays" continues tonight with  Phosphorescent and the Campbell Brothers. They'll be performing in the Jay Pritzker Pavilion in Millennium Park beginning at 6:30. If you'd like to pack a picnic Pastoral on Lake Street offers fantastic cheeses, wines, and sandwiches.


Tonight's the fourth annual "Bab Fab:A Barbra Streisand Celebration" at Theater Wit.  The one-night-only event will celebrate the legendary musical career of the songstress from her early days in Greenwich Village through super stardom.


Have a great day! 


Music: The awesome intro and outro music is from Chicago singer/songwriter David Kav


Voice: Theresa Carter opens and closes the podcast, and Jim Goodrich tells you where to go With A Voice Like This
