Sketchfest 2020!

GayCo @ SKETCHFEST 2020

We’re doing it again. For the past 19 years GayCo has performed at the largest Sketch Comedy Festival in the entire WORLD, and it’s right here in Chicago. We have been asked back to perform at the fest to make sure it ends up being FABULOUS!

The festival runs for two weeks and features more than 800 performers, representing over 100 groups, who perform over 120 shows. While the majority of Chicago SketchFest performers are from Chicago (which, after all, is the sketch comedy capital of America), troupes from Boston, L.A., New York, Portland, Seattle, Milwaukee, Austin, and Denver are also performing. But you only need to catch one show – GayCo on Saturday, Jan. 11th at 7pm!

PCP is BAaaaaack!

Are you looking for ways to celebrate milestones like the 50th anniversary of Stonewall, Chicago’s 1st openly gay mayor, and Bert and Ernie finally being acknowledged as an official couple? Soon to be rolling in money when Elizabeth Warren wipes out all your student loans? Is your inner Sci-fi nerd disappointed that Rocketman wasn’t more Apollo 13? Oh hunty, pat those falsies back down and squat just once more into (P)ride (C)omedy (P)arty Pt. II faster than Jasmine can say to Will Smith, “Oh no you Aladdidn’t!”

In collaboration with the Russian government, GayCo productions proudly presents the hottest party in town — the Pride Comedy Party part II! This June, let GayCo Productions launch you back into your carousing days where the world wasn’t so much of a sh%tstorm, as long as you were stuffed full of Pride! It’s as if “Whose Line is it Anyway” had a GAYBY with a frat house. This short form improvisation show encourages you to live your best life while serving you pure pride realness. GayCo’s P.C.P. PT. II will remind you why we have a reason to be loud, proud, and inebriated*; because if we don’t laugh through the crazy in the world, there’s no way we’re gonna make it out alive. We guarantee a night more fun than activating your rainbow vomit Snapchat filter! (*We also welcome teetotalers, designated drivers, recovering alcoholics, and those under 21.)

(P)ride (C)omedy (P)arty Pt. II, only has two shows during Pride weekend; June 28th & 29th at 10 PM in the heart of boystown at The Playground Theatre (3209 N. Halsted). Tickets are $15 and can be purchased at the door or in advance by visiting https://GayCoPCP2019.eventbrite.com (or clicking the big button below).

Let’s get Sketchy!

Fillet of Solo – A night of stories

Stay out of the cold and join us for two special evenings (1/12 & 1/20) during GayCo’s annual “Fillet of Solo” storytelling event, located at Heartland Studio Theatre in Rogers Park.

As we reflect back on 2017, GayCo would like to whisk you away with the narratives presented by our wonderful storytellers, dividing our attention into two insightful evenings.

JANUARY 12TH, 7 PM – IDENTITIES
The theme of our first night deals with IDENTITIES. In a community where identity plays such a large part, how has that identity changed in the past political year? What have we discovered about ourselves during the Trump administration? Is it really okay to still consider yourself goth? Our story tellers for the evening are:

Casey Coppess
L. Hejl
Brittani Ferguson
Xerxes Flores
Matt Fox

JANUARY 20TH, 7 PM – FIRSTS
Our second evening is all about our firsts. (Ironic, I know.) First loves, first kisses, first heartbreaks, first embarrassments – all of the “first moments” that shape who we are and explain the quirks we’ve come to bear. Our story tellers for this night are:

Jessica Belless
Kathy Betts
Casey Coppess
Debra Duncan
Maya Haughton
Katie Perry
Rachel Relman

Please join us at the Heartland Studio Theatre in Rogers Park on January 12 & 20th at 7PM for GayCo’s presentation of “Fillet of Solo.”
