IF YOU ALREADY KNOW US:
We love doing our show, but there are some changes that would really help to improve the production. These are:

Theater rental: We'd like to do the six episodes of our next season at the beautiful Stage 773 Cab theater, which asks for $250 per night.

Sound equipment: We would like to purchase our own P.A. system for better amplification, specifically for our musical guests. The intention is also to improve the recording of the sound for our online clips.

What we're asking for would accomplish this theater rental being $250 x 6 = $1500 plus the sound equipment estimated at $1861 equals $3361

IF YOU DON'T KNOW US:
The Late Live Show is a late-night talk show that's been in Chicago on and off for the past two years. We take the classic late-night talk show format, give it a contemporary sensibility, and fill it with as much comedy as we can. Here’s what you’ll get when you come see us:

We’ve been featured in MAXIM Magazine, DailyCandy, Huffington Post, and other press publications who have said nice things like this:

Chicago Reader “The Late Live Show provides an often-hilarious platform for unconventional local celebrities and bands. This is late-night geekery worth staying up for.”

Time Out Chicago “…surprisingly deft and culty” “…a late-night comedy show that’s crafting big laughs and a big following thanks in part to the palpable studio vibe, engaging banter and goofball antics.”

The A.V. Club “…act peppers in an underlying self-awareness and satirical edge, though, as well as that omnipresent sense of danger that comes from doing something live”
