Stir Friday Night: A Live Comedy Show on a Wednesday

Join us for a one-night-only live comedy performance featuring Chicago’s most-established all-Asian-American comedy team, Stir Friday Night! During this one-hour show, the team will create a new improvised movie – a wuxia movie to be exact. For those unfamiliar with the genre, think Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon or House of Flying Daggers, heroic martial arts with sweeping cinematography. Stir Friday Night will be bringing all that with no set and no script and lots of funny!

Founded in 1995, Stir Friday Night is a fixture in Chicago’s comedy scene. SFN proudly includes performers such as Danny Pudi (Community), Mary Sohn (A.P. Bio), and Oscar nominee Steven Yeun (Minari, The Walking Dead) as notable alumni. Come watch Stir Friday Night’s current rising stars improvise up close before they’re whisked away to Hollywood!

This performance is made possible by the Chicago Public Library Foundation’s Community Connections Fund.
