The Shit Show is a one-of-a-kind monthly Chicago comedy showcase at Collaboraction Theater in heart of Wicker Park that takes place the last Saturday of every month.

The show combines the ambiance of a run-down frat party with the high-class jokes and characters from talented comics from different genres of the Chicago comedy scene.
