Louis Katz at the Den Theatre
The Den Theatre is pleased to host comedy showcase Louis Katz on September 17th at 1331 N. Milwaukee Ave. in Chicago’s Wicker Park neighborhood.
Louis Katz’s comedy deftly combines the highbrow and the lowbrow, creating a truly unique style that has been described as “cerebral filth.”
Throughout his career, Louis’ stand-up has been featured on NBC, HBO, and 5 times on Comedy Central, including his own half-hour special and an appearance on their storytelling show, “This Is Not Happening,” which has since been viewed over 2.8 million times on YouTube.
His latest album, “KATZKILLS,” was named one of the top 5 comedy albums of the year by Vulture.com, which called it “a raucous comedy party.”
Louis’ first one-hour special was released on Epix in 2022 as part of their “Unprotected Sets” series.
A true comedian’s comedian, Louis’ act has garnered praise from industry legends such as Dave Attell, who called him, “one of the best joke writers working today” and Ali Wong who said Louis was “one of the funniest and most prolific comedians I know.” Marc Maron featured Louis on his WTF podcast, saying “his album and special are hilarious.” But perhaps Doug Stanhope put it best when he said “Katz is funny to the point that Hitler would have given him a sleeper car on the train.”
