The lineup includes
Jamie Brew (Writer for The Onion, Clickhole)
Becca Brown (The Second City)
Sammy Arechar (Opened for TJ Miller, Bridgetown Comedy Festival)
Steven King (Opened for Eric Andre, Chicago Comedy Exposition)

This event will be hosted by Field Agent Charlie Vergos, a Chicago-based comedian with an abundance of curiosity and a short attention span. Though originally from Memphis, his series of day jobs as an architectural tour guide, double decker bus tour guide, deep dish pizza waiter, and graphics assistant at the Onion have given him a knowledge and understanding of Chicago that rivals most locals. He also has a lifetime watermelon eating contest record of 3-0-0. Charlie performs regularly all over the city and has been featured at the Laughing Skull Festival, Zanie's, the Paper Machete, Hell Yes Fest, the Memphis Comedy Festival, and the Crossroads Comedy Festival, among others.
