Just for Laughs Chicago Wrap-up – Day Three

Schadenfreude quips with Chicago furniture tycoon Tim Smithe

After what became an extremely late Wednesday night, things were feeling a little sluggish for Day Three of the festival. On the slab for the evening was the music and sketch comedy of local institution Schadenfreude at local rock joint Martyrs. The group welcomed several special guests for their “uber-local” jokings, including radio personalities Eddie and JoBo, furniture mogul Tim Smithe, comedians Brian Babylon and Joe Bill, soul band The Jordan Years, and Grammy-winning Chicago hip-hop artist Rhymefest. The audience was treated to esoteric observations on all things Chicago, coupled with an inspiring musical backdrop from The Jordan Years. Rhymefest helped close out the sketch portion of the evening, proving that he’s more than just a pretty face in the rap game, but also an astute comedian in his own right.
