The Blackout Diaries is a comedy show were standup comedians, plus ‘regular’ people (cops, firefighters, teachers, etc) tell true drinking stories. Then you, the audience, can ask questions.
The show has been a critics’ pick by most major Chicago papers and been featured on NPR, Comedy Central and more. Its host, Sean Flannery, was even named the best drunk in Chicago by The Chicago Reader, though we are trying still trying to figure out what that award means. Come by for some of the funniest drinking stories you’ve heard. And stay for the Malort! (show is sponsored by Malort and even includes free tastes with a slogan contents).
