Hey 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 back in August. Now it’s time for the holiday edition of Bell Hop, which is coming this Saturday, December 19 at 9PM. Abramson and special guest Tommy McNamara are hosting, with sets from Late Show With Stephen Colbert writer Daniel Kibblesmith, plus head writer for the Detroit Pistons CJ Toledano, author Jennifer Wright and stand-ups The Puterbaugh Sisters, Derek Smith, Irene Marquette, and Steven King. The show is free, too (although it’s 21+ only, sorry), but space is limited: Get to the Virgin early-ish, and tell them you’re looking for the 25th floor. It will be fun.
