For the locals: Just for Laughs on the cheap
Sure, there are plenty of star acts at the fourth annual TBS Just for Laughs Chicago festival, which runs through Sunday this week at 18 venues around the city. But sometimes, the biggest laughs come with the smallest ticket prices, as in these local shows, which feature both established and emerging comedians in intimate settings—including Scott Adsit (“30 Rock”), TJ Miller (“Cloverfield,” ABC-TV’s “Carpoolers”) and John Glaser and Kevin Dorff (“Delocated”) plus local favorites Lil Rel, Susan Messing, Brian Babylon, Sean Flannery, Jet Eveleth and more—at half the price of the big-venue shows.
