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 celebration to commemorate THREE YEARS of body positivity and quality stand up comedy in Chicago!
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 A PARTY!
After our stand up show, we will have music, a photo-booth, Strip Joker merch, and a featured maker selling their goods in our space while we hang till bar close! This show will feature one of our favorite makers, Harnesses by Emma Alamo! Emma Alamo makes leather (and vegan!) handmade harnesses for every body which will be for sale before and after the show. See some of her items and read about her here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/EmmaAlamo
