Popular underground comedy show with a queer twist mirgrates for one night only.
“MASTERFULLY BLENDED COMEDY, THEATER, PERFORMANCE ART, AND THAT SPECIAL SHINE AND SHARPNESS OF WINDY CITY TEETH” ? THE HUFFINGTON POST
Making Out With Wes Perry And Friends, the uniquely curated event that integrates improvisation, sketch, and standup comedy with storytelling, performance art, and drag, will be at The Hideout on March 3rd. Making Out boasts a monthly residency at the Upstairs Gallery, every third Wednesday of the month, where is it has set box office and attendance records, and is one of the theatre’s most popular shows, consistently performing to standing room only crowds. The show is hosted by Wes Perry, a writer and performer who, with the help of a live band, uses his background in improvisation and sketch to create solo pieces that blend storytelling and music in a way that is original, honest, and absurd.
On March 3rd, Wes will take over The Hideout, with help from Seth & Kellen (Ned Talks, Holy F*ck Comedy Hour), TV SCREAMS (Kill All Comedy), Superhuman (iO, The Annoyance), as well as burlesque performer Mister Junior, actor and voguer Nic K, alternative drag artist Judi Bluum, The Queer Choir, and more! Swaguerilla (Chances Dances, Salonathon) will DJ before and after the show.
Wes has worked closely with The Annoyance, iO Chicago, ImprovAcadia, and is a graduate of the Second City Comedy Studies Program. His hit one-man show, Don’t Act Like A Girl, was lauded as a “triumph” and “an eminently enjoyable journey of great comic timing and reflection” by The Windy City Times and a “nifty slice of underdog theater” by Time Out Chicago.
