Pop Up Comedy Show

August 1, 2019

Don’t Tell Comedy puts on hundreds of comedy shows across the nation. They produce intimate shows in secret locations with secret comedians and last month Beyond Design was one of those “secret” venues!

We opened our gates to 6 different stand up comedians and a hand selected audience for a night of comedy. Unlike small, dark clubs, the shows take place in unique and beautiful spaces across the city. Originated in Los Angeles, the shows now spawn across the country in almost 40 cities, one of which is Chicago.

The comedians get a chance to be up and close and personal with those splayed across the courtyard and feel the pressure of a joke landing flat or a room full of laughter. Comedians range from local up and comers to well known talent such as Ali Wong, Iliza Shlesinger, David Koechner, and Nickki Glasser.

Take a look at our first Don’t Tell Comedy show below! And stay tuned for more courtyard events as we wrap up summer. All photography by Adam Azzaro.
