Roberta Miles, best known to Chicago audiences as a jazz singer and painter, has rapidly gained a reputation for her irreverent autobiographical monologues that make up a tell-all expose of her quirky, edgy life. These monologues are the basis for her one-woman show, which debuted summer, 2009 at the StrawDog Theatre. Roberta has appeared with Jason Paul Smith at the Skokie Theatre Foundation in Skokie, Illinois in a two person show called "Hot Dish: The Monologues." She is also the co-producer of "Café Cabaret" which runs monthly at "Café Ballou" in Chicago. Roberta is an award winning monologuist and a published poet, soon to be a published author.
Jillian Erickson is a performance artist, monologist, poet, writer, pain in the ass...She moved to Chicago to do exactly what she is doing and couldn't be giddier. She is the successful co-producer, co-director, and performer for the all female cabaret BEAST WOMEN 2013. Beast Women recently celebrated its 163rd performance at The GreenHouse Theater in Chicago. She is also part of the film company, JAkT Films, and a series called "Myths" which is a combination of paint, sculpture, and spoken word.
Tamale moved to Chicago and went through I.O. Chicago, Second City's Conservatory Program, and Annoyance Theater. She was up to her neck in comedy and was loving every minute. Trouble was, there were all these other fun things to do and explore that kept catching her eye. After exploring many different forms of the arts, Tamale decided that it was time for a show... a comedy show that showcased all these interests and the amazing people she loves to play with, so she began producing Brass Chuckles.

Thanks to Emerald City Coffee for hosting this night. Right off the Sheridan red line, stop in for anything on our menu and tasty things "off the menu." In addition, our lovely facelift continues in house, new paint on the ceiling, new lighting fixtures, new chairs, new menus so it only makes sense for our logo and online presence to also receive a new look.
