Kicking off Pride with 3 Sketch Comedy Shows!

GayCo has a June packed with events!  While ending the month with 4 chances to see our improvised show, PRIDEZIILA, we kick off Pride month with 3 “best of” Sketch shows in the various festivals and fundraisers described below.  Come Pride it up with us!

1. Chicago Funny Women’s FestivalFWF_gayco

In case you forgot what hilarious lesbians look like or you just need more GayCo ladies in your life, join us for the “Women of GayCo” at the 3rd annual Chicago Women’s Funny Festival (CWFF) at 9pm on the first Friday of June.

From revealing the magic of how to make a relationship work, to proving you’re never too old for love, to risking it all to enjoy some delicious home-style country cooking, the Women of GayCo bring out some of their best-of chick scenes for all genders and sexual orientations to enjoy!

Starting the month off on Sunday, June 1st @ 10:30 PM, is Qweirdo! 
QWEIRDO is a showcase of Chicago’s top gay comedians and improvisers coming together to make you laugh in the way that only your gay best friend (or a drunk Jessica Lange) can. The host improv team is ThoraBirch, featuring Drew Anderson, Derek Van Barham, and Thom Gaughan. They will invite different gay groups, stand ups, and solo acts to perform with them each night. Additional performers include: Gayco, Wes Perry, Tim Paul, Candy Lawrence, Rob Anderson, Ike Holter, Witch Hazel (to name a fabulous few).
In honor of June being Gay Pride Month, a portion of all ticket sales will go to Howard Brown Health Center. The Howard Brown Health Center is one of the nation’s largest lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) organizations and serves more than 16,000 adults and youth each year in its diverse health and social service programs. You can also pop over to these guys to get good health care services from any part of the world. For more information please visit:
SPREAD THE WORD! We want to fill those seats and raise as much money for Howard Brown as we can!
