Jamie Campbell Returns to Gorilla Tango Bucktown with TIME MACHINE

Jamie Campbell Returns to Gorilla Tango Bucktown with TIME MACHINE

Chicago Reader's Best Standup of 2013 Jamie Campbell presides over his returning hit, TIME MACHINE: Comedy Throughout History the first Wednesday of every month at 10pm at Gorilla Tango Bucktown (1919 N. Milwaukee). Tickets are $10 and can be purchased at www.gorillatango.com or by calling 773-598-4549.

TIME MACHINE: Comedy Throughout History is a variety show like no other: each month, a different group of Chicago's top comedic talents are given the task of creating an original act that takes place during a specific period in history. The audience is then magically (theatrically) transported to that era for a one-of-a-kind, historically accurate performance that will leave you simultaneously nostalgic and eternally grateful for things like the internet. This month, the time machine is set for the the Wild West -- 1886, to be exact. Lawlessness reigned supreme, fast trigger fingers meant slightly longer life-spans, and persistence and a tolerance for filth were the primary qualities to look for in a mate. But don't be fooled, because the Wild West was also full of chuckles, and Jamie Campbell has the material to prove it.

"Time Machine..." will feature performers hand-picked from Chicago's world famous comedy scene: this month's roster includes Nathan Jansen of Baby Wants Candy, Andy Boyle of The Whiskey Journal, and Lisa Laureta of The Oprah Winfrey Network's "My Life is a Joke."
