Join us for another First Friday comedy show, the crowds and the laughs keep getting bigger and bigger. Enjoy some great beer while you listen to some of the nation’s top comics. NO CHARGE because Saw Works Brewery loves you!
September’s comedy show includes two of Chicago’s top rising comics, Dave Losso and Alex Kumin. Adding to the laughs are the local comedic talents of Tyler Sonnichsen and John Andrew Miller.
A little bit about the featured artists:
Dave Losso was born & raised and currently lives in Chicago, IL but enjoys doing stand-up just about anywhere. Sometimes this means performing in living rooms, the Orlando Indie Comedy Festival, bowling alleys, the Cape Fear Comedy Festival, sex shops, the Madison Comedy Festival and even comic book stores.
His tireless DIY work ethic has landed him all over the country and sharing the stage with such acts as Kyle Kinane, Ari Shaffir, Ben Kronberg, Sean Patton, Jared Logan and Ian Karmel. He’s also been featured on Hindsight with Dan Van Kirk, Arguments & Grievances, in the Chicago Tribune and appeared in the pilot Hidden America with Jonah Ray.
Back home, he produces the critically acclaimed showcases The Yeah Buddy Awesome Time Comedy Show and Best Night Ever and served as a staff writer for The Whiskey Journal Live at The Lincoln Lodge.
The 1988 film Die Hard is based on his life.
Alex Kumin’s bold and socially conscious standup delights crowds across the city of Chicago and around the US. She is a cast member of the longest running independent standup comedy showcase in the country, The Lincoln Lodge, and is one of the fastest rising comedians in the city.
She has opened for Kyle Kinane, Todd Barry and Jen Kirkman, and has appeared in Accidental Comedy Fest, Limestone Comedy Festival and The Chicago Comedy Expo. She was highlighted in Chicago magazine as a comedian with “unapologetic honesty” and tackles heavy hitting social issues, ranging from gender inequality to thigh chaffing.
