Comedy & Nudity
Partnered with the 'You are Beautiful' campaign, Strip Joker combines body positivity and stand-up comedy into one hilarious show.
Comics will be taking off clothes and doing their best body positive material! Our comics remove clothing in ways that make them feel empowered and comfortable in our space. Read about us in the Chicago Reader or this great feature in the Chicago Tribune!
Strip Joker has been featured in The Chicago Women's Funny Festival, Cream City Comedy Festival, Memphis Comedy Festival, Lady Laughs Comedy Festival, Burning Bridges Comedy Fest, Midwest Queer Comedy Fest, and seen on The Drop Comedy Club, and The Steppenwolf stage.
Making it's new home in Mary's Attic, this once a month showcase features the best comics in Chicago for a fantastic, hour and a half, mostly nude, totally funny, showcase. 2nd Saturdays of every month.
