Lakeshore Presents Stone Cold Comedy at Mayne Stage

Mayne Stage is proud to announce our very first Lakeshore Presents show featuring some of the best local comedians in Chicago. STACEY NORGREN, former Lakeshore Theater bartender turned stand-up comedian, hosts the night featuring DREW MICHAEL, BETH STELLING, JUNIOR STOPKA, MIKE STANLEY and more!

DREW MICHAEL is arguably the most honest comedian working in Chicago today. Charming the stage with a dark perspective and brutal honesty that no one is immune from, including himself. Drew co-produces and performs in the local, independent Chicago stand-up comedy showcase Comedians You Should Know.

Wry, witty, cunning, and crass MIKE STANLEY tours constantly, both domestically and internationally. Named one of’s Top 20 Stand-up Comedians in Chicago, Stanley recently became the subject of a feature-length documentary, Salty Language, Peppered Morals, which follows him on the road to the Boston Comedy Festival and explores the intricate inner-workings of his explosive onstage persona.

The affable BETH STELLING has been named a “Comedian to Watch” by the Chicago Tribune and was the youngest performer to be featured on’s Top 20 Stand-up Comedians in Chicago.

JUNIOR STOPKA is a Chicago-born stand-up comedian. He began doing stand-up in 2005 after a successful career in amateur boxing. In 5 years, Stopka has become a local favorite, also being named one of's Top 20 Comics in the city.

Most recently, STELLING and STOPKA tied for the Chicago Reader's Best Stand-Up Comedian Award of 2010.

Only $5, this is a show not to be missed!
