2015 BGA Summer Comedy Event
January 1, 1970 @ 12:00 am
A BIG THANK YOU: Thursday night was full of hilarious family stories, the struggles of dog ownership, homebuying woes and more from Chicago-bred funnyman John Mulaney at the BGA’s summer comedy fundraiser.
Mulaney returned home for one night only to perform for the sold out crowd at the Park West. This was the fourth annual fundraiser put on by the BGA’s Young Professionals Board and the most successful to-date. The roughly 600 guests enjoyed hors d’oeuvres and drinks while checking out the vast array of raffle prizes. Chicago-based comedian Adam Burke, voted the best local standup in the Chicago Reader last year, warmed up the crowd with his candid observations of life in Chicago.
Many thanks to our sponsors, supporters, board members and attendees for another stand out event.
