Entertainment. Chicago History. Emerging Artists and Huge Stars. You can have them all, up close and personal, at the new season of CHICAGO LIVE! with my favorite master of ceremonies, WGN Personality, Tribune Writer, Rick Kogan.
And CHICAGO LIVE! has a brand-new home — the all new: Second City UP Comedy Club.

Do not miss the excitement and the stellar lineup of greatness listed below. Get to the Up Comedy Club at 6:30 p.m. on Thursdays. After each show, the audience is invited to a 30-minute reception with the cast, crew and guests.
