TJ Miller, Hannibal Buress, Pete Holmes, Cameron Esposito, and so many more of your favorite comedians these days cut their teeth in comedy in Chicago and specifically did so at a place known as The Lincoln Lodge.
As it stands now, The Lincoln Lodge needs to find a new home to not only continue to be a pillar in Chicago comedy, but support gender equality in comedy and foster new talent like they’ve been doing so well for so many years.
Don’t take our word for it though. Let TJ Miller himself tell you why you should help find a new home for The Lincoln Lodge no matter if you live in Chicago or not.
Tight Five Productions, the team behind this whole operation, looking for an additional $30K after raising $50K for “permits, licenses and minimal resources we need to build out a facility with a 100 seat theater and classrooms” so they can open in July 2017.
