As you may recall, during last year's Just For Laughs festival in Chicago, we presented a late-night stand-up show called [REDACTED]. You bought tickets on faith, all the money went to 826 Chicago, and you were rewarded with an incredible lineup that included Aziz Ansari, Patton Oswalt, Amy Schumer, Kyle Kinane, Hannibal Buress, Janeane Garofalo, Brian Posehn, and more.
Can you tell where this is going? We're doing [REDACTED] again, this time on June 12, 2013. Once again, you won't know who's performing until they step on stage. Once again, the proceeds will go straight to 826 Chicago. Once again, tickets will sell out very quickly. The venue has changed to the slightly larger Constellation (formerly the Viaduct Theater, near Western and Belmont), but the capacity is very small and everyone will get a seat. (And yup, it's on the expensive side again: $60. But worth it.) Tickets will go on sale tomorrow morning, May 17, at 10 a.m. central. This is the link. See you there!
