Chicago Checklist

Photo courtesy of Time Out New YorkTwo Chicago expats are up for Time Out New York's Joke of the Year -- vote now for David Angelo or Kumail Nanjiani (or both!). They are joined by formidable competition in the form of Zach Galifianakis, Sean Patton, Chelsea Peretti, Taylor Williamson, Erik Bergstrom, Brent Weinbach and Aziz Ansari.

Speaking of Time Out, Chicago Time Out comedy editor Jason Heidemann gives his (mostly) tongue-in-cheek "Comedy Predictions for 2010". Do you have any predictions of your own?

Nick Vatterott has some pointers for people dreaming of standing up for the first time. Check out his detailed blog post, if you're one of these folks.

Paul F. Tompkins talks to Chicago Public Radio's WBEZ about using social media to convince him to perform at various cities in the country. The successful Chicago effort was headed by Chicago Underground Comedy co-producer Dan Telfer (Tompkins is still looking for the perfect venue here in CHI, and has not set a date yet.)

2009 was a pretty good year for both Mike Bridenstine and Matt Braunger, judging from their recent "2009 Round-Ups". Best of luck for 2010, everyone!
