TWIX PRESENTS: TBS JUST FOR LAUGHS CHICAGO
June 14–June 18
THE CHICAGO THEATRE
The Anti-Social Network
7:30 p.m. June 15
The Anti-Social Network features the combination of comedic powerhouses Dave Attell, Jim Breuer, Bill Burr and the show’s host and brainchild, Jim Norton. Norton conceived the idea for The Anti-Social Network in late 2010 when he wanted to change up his annual shows in Atlantic City and put something special and different together for his fans. Having four headliners on one stage seemed to be the perfect way to give his fans a new and exciting show: Norton says, “Dave, Jim and Bill are three of the funniest comics on the planet. This is definitely the best show I’ve ever been a part of.”
