The Lincoln Lodge

The Lincoln Lodge  is Chicago’s favorite stand up comedy show and the nation’s longest running independent comedy showcase, now in its 16th year. Each week, the Lincoln Lodge features the best stand up comedy in Chicago, a hilarious variety act, and a Man on the Street segment.

When:  Shows are every Friday at 8:00 pm (Doors open at 7:30 pm) – Show times may be different for special events.

Where:  The SubT Lounge at 2011 W. North Avenue, Chicago, IL

How much: Tickets are $10 (suggested donation) for most shows but may be more for special events.

Getting there:  Best option is the CTA Blue Line Damen stop which is just steps from the venue. Street parking is available but be advised that we are located in the heart of Bucktown – one of the most vibrant, exciting places to be in Chicago!- and as such you should leave ample time time to locate parking in the neighborhood. Seriously…take the El!

Food and Drink: A full menu is available both before and during the show. Click here to view the venue menu. There is no minimum purchase enforced – yay!

Show Length: The show lasts approximately 75 minutes
