Strip Joker is Chicago’s body positive stand-up comedy show featuring a diverse line-up of comedians from around the country! In the spirit of inclusivity, vulnerability, and uncensored comedy, Strip Joker highlights the voices of queer and POC comedians, and celebrates ALL bodies as the show’s founding mission since 2016. With a new show each month, you won’t want to miss us every 2nd Saturday in our new home in Mary’s Attic, at 10pm!
This show will feature some of our favorite stand up comedians with a special homecoming/sex positive themed after party!
As we approach 3 years, we realize Strip Joker has grown, evolved, and is looking to do more good for our community as we move to a new space and reach a wider audience. Now, each Strip Joker show will partner with a local organization to raise awareness and funds; We will have representatives from these organizations tabling at our show, and comedians will perform for ‘tips’ from audience members during their acts to raise money for the local organizations we partner with. (All tips will be donations, comedians and performers will be paid through ticket sales.) In addition to our dedication to local activism, we also want to give you MORE SHOW! After our stand up show, we will take a brief break and then host a BONUS curated after party show featuring some of our favorite drag, dance, storytelling, music and variety acts focused around our Strip Joker theme! Our bonus show will give more performers a chance to be a part of our unique show, more entertainment for you, and keep the fun rolling until we close the bar.
Mary’s Attic is located in the heart of Chicago’s Andersonville neighborhood, right above the cultural staple, Hamburger Mary’s at 5400 N Clark St. Show is 21+ with a full bar, food menu, and kitchen open until 12am. Mary’s Attic is ADA accessible, please let us know with your RSVP in your ticket purchase if you need any accommodations and we will be sure to help!
