BUGHOUSE! 1.8.18

Literate Ape presents BUGHOUSE!, a 75-minute show designed to interrogate concepts, proselytize truth, and dissect popular thought through a lens of skeptical artistry. Three bouts, six warriors, three decisions. BUGHOUSE! aims to definitively answer the most (and least) important questions of the day.

"Call Out Culture: Instructive or Destructive?"
"Gentrification: Boon or Bane?"
Michael Bay: Hack or Genius?"


These questions and so many more will be explored, debated and answered by a singular deciding judge (randomly selected from the audience) and soapboxed by some of Chicago’s finest writers, stand up comics, musicians, and poets.

For January 8th the lineup will be:

David Barish
Joe Janes
Don Hall
Risa McDonnell
Brian Sweeney
David Himmel


Drinking and Writing Theatre @ Haymarket Pub & Brewery, 737 W. Randolph

Tickets are $10.00 at the door
