Funny Ha-Ha: Next Tuesday Night at the Hideout

(As opposed to "Funny Weird"?) Fart jokes are all well and good, but how about we mix it up with a little literary humor? You know, stuff that looks as pretty on paper as it sounds coming out of your mouth.

Next Tuesday, August 1, at 7, Chicago blogging royalty Claire Zulkey will host the latest of Funny Ha-Ha, the literary humor reading series.

"This installment features sketch comedy by Schadenfreude, a monologue by comedian Andy Ross, short films by Steve Delahoyde and readings from Eric Spitznagel (editor at The Believer and author of Fast Forward: Confessions of a Porn Screenwriter), Mimi Smartypants (blogger and author of The World According to Mimi Smartypants), and John Green (author of Looking for Alaska and the forthcoming An Abundance of Katherines.)"

Where? The Hideout . How much? $5 suggested donation at the door. All proceeds benefit the Neighborhood Writing Alliance. (Yeah, the initials are N.W.A. But it's not these guys. Nor is it the National Weather Association.) Call 773.227.4433 for more info.
