The Comedy Bowl is an all ages, family friendly stand up comedy and trivia showcase that occurs every other Tuesday during a designated season. The Comedy Bowl is held at Diversey Rock-N-Bowl 2211 W. Diversey Pkwy Chicago, IL 60647.
This unique, bi-monthly, comedy show features 4 different national touring comedians as well as unique trivia questions based on that week’s show theme. Previous show themes have been “Chicago’s World’s Fair,” “Companies That Once Were,” “Black History Month,” and “Women in Sports” to name a few.
The audience are asked to submit raffle tickets with their name on it, and then pulled and invited to participate in one of the three trivia questions posed to the group on a projector screen. The participant is allowed to answer the question on their own, “Poll the Audience” or “Phone a Comic” [one featuring on the show]. Each successful participant wins a prize.
At the show’s closing we invite comics and/or audience members to participate in a Lip Sync competition. The winner is determined by audience applause and is given a prize. Our last bit is a 1 min Mini Dance Party and the show is over!
Unlike many comedy shows The Comedy Bowl invites all ages and is a family friendly showcase. Each show will be a taped live and start promptly between 8-8:30pm and is over by 10pm.
