Gaywatch – Searching for Pride

GayCo rescues its Pride with a special evening of improv & storytelling!

Summer is near and if you’re feeling queer, then GayCo Productions is here to save the day with theatre!  It’s time for GayCo, Chicago’s premier LGBTQ sketch comedy company, to hit the beach with GAYWATCH!

This annual sell-out Pride event is a wave of entirely improvised comedy shows inspired by the stories told by inspirational heroes of the LGBT community.  You may or may not see chiseled abs in the caliber of Zac Efron’s or Double D’s to the likes of Pamela Anderson’s, but you will laugh so hard you’ll need mouth to mouth resuscitation.

GAYWATCH runs Friday and Saturday at 10:30pm, June 23rd and 24th.  After a long day at the festival, come drink and laugh while GayCo provides the raunchiest, sexiest, and downright gayest pride show yet.  Grab your speedo, abandon your sand castles, and jump into the deep end of The Playground Theater (3209 N. Halsted St) in the heart of Boystown.  Tickets are $15 and can be bought in advance at

GAYWATCH also features the ensemble members of GayCo and some all-star improvisors.  As a means to bring the beach to the stage, the cast will be decked out in the most scandalous swimwear the coast guard will allow.

Gaywatch Monologists:  
Friday:  Ali FitzSimmons – A life coach who inspires people to reach their full potential by working with them to take control of their lives.

Saturday:  Andy Eninger – Actor, Director, Writer, Teacher, and one of the founding members of GayCo – pioneering LGBT themed sketch comedy and empowering LGBT performers and audiences.

Andy is moving to L.A. so this may be the last time you get to see him perform in Chicago!  

GayCo Productions is a homo-sensible, bi-larious LGBTQ theatre ensemble that was formed out of the famed Second City in 1996. For 20 years, it has produced thought-provoking and irreverent sketch comedy revues where gay is always the given and never the punchline.
