Hello Chicago. If you ventured out to any of this year’s 26th Annual Comedy Festival, you may have seen Ian Abramson performing, either as the host of the delightful 7 Minutes In Purgatory, or perhaps opening for Kyle Kinane. Abramson and his 7 Minutes co-creator Matt Byrne have come up with a new monthly live comedy show, Bell Hop, which debuted at the Virgin Hotel Chicago a couple of weeks ago. Now they’ve fired up a second installment, featuring a ton of great Chicago talent (in addition to Abramson): Adam Burke, Marty Derosa, Rebecca O’Neal (no relation), Charlie Bury, and Tim Lyons. The show is free, too, but space is limited: Get to the Virgin early-ish, and tell them you’re looking for the 25th floor. It will be fun.
