Comedy Sportz & Pat McCurdy
I woke up this morning with a raging headache. No I’m not hung over from the night before. Heck, I didn’t even drink any alcohol. It’s mostly from the loud noise. I guess it’s my fault for not taking my headache medication. Anyway, last night some friends and I started the evening at Comedy Sportz which was pretty fun. I’d been introduced to this brand of team sports by my best guy friend many years ago at Milwaukee Summerfest and ever since then I’ve been sort of hooked. It’s entertaining to watch people complete against once another doing improv comedy. After Comedy Sportz, we went next door to Crush (formerly known as Coyle’s Tippling House) to hear Pat McCurdy sing. He has a cult like following of “Patheads” some who see over 100 shows a year and now I know why. While he sings his own brand of wacky songs, he mixes those with snippets of popular 80s and 90s song. Thus the audience gets heavily involved in the performance chanting out the words to popular songs you’d long since filed away. For any of you out there who want to experience Pat, he plays every Monday night in Chicago @ Beat Kitchen.
