The Kates

  • The Book Cellar 4736 North Lincoln Avenue Chicago, IL, 60625 United States (map)

The kates provide an intimate night of comedy different from anything you'll see at a typical Chicago club or late night bar.

"If someone tells you that women aren't funny, march that person right over to the Book Cellar for an evening of cupcakes and comedy. On second thought, don't. More cupcakes for the rest of us. This informal evening of sharp stand-up features a rotating cast of Chicago's best female jokers. Critics praise the cozy, sugar-fueled feel and the hosting skills of ringleader Kelsie Huff." - centerstagechicago.com

From darkly amusing musical numbers, storytelling, the awkward art of clowning, absurd solo performances, and uproarious stand-up comedy, the kates continue to crack up new audiences and ensure that loyal fans come back to Lincoln Square for da' laughs.
