NBC's UNDATEABLE Tour Comes to UP Comedy Club, 3/17
UP Comedy Club has just the thing to keep you from crying in your green beer all night this St. Patrick's Day as it welcomes NBC's Undateable Tour to its stage. This one-night-only event features the cast of the new NBC show Undateable, including comedians Chris D'Elia, Brent Morin, Ron Funches and Rick Glassman and is hosted by the show's co-creator and executive producer Bill Lawrence. Each comedian performs his own set, giving you a taste of the humor you can expect when Undateble premieres this spring. The Undateable Tour will be presented on Monday, March 17 at 7pm at the UP Comedy Club, located at 230 W. North Ave 3rd Floor of Piper's Alley, Chicago.
Chris D'Elia was 16 the first time he performed stand-up comedy. He would act up in church, so the pastor told him that he could do some time on stage afterwards if he behaved himself. Well, he didn't behave, but he was still allowed to get on stage in front of everyone.
His comedy is populated with characters and voices, perhaps due to his background in acting. Chris will be starring in NBC's upcoming Undateable and was recently seen co-starring in the NBC sitcom Whitney, opposite Whitney Cummings. He has also guest starred on shows such as Workaholics, Monk, Boston Legal, and the TBS series Glory Daze, among others. Chris has toured the United States with fellow comedian Jo Koy and opened for Carlos Mencia. He has performed his stand-up on Showtime's Live Nude Comedy and Comedy Central's Live at Gotham. Chris' half-hour Comedy Central Presents special aired in 2011 and his one-hour Comedy Central special White Male. Black Comic premiered in December 2013.
