Alas, Schlock & Awe has come to an end but we have more fun in store for you with our next show, U.S. vs Them: Sketch comedy about bombs in US foreign policy.


Schlock & Awe!
Justin Bieber gets in touch with his feminine side. Secrets of the cultural illuminati are exposed. Puppets are violated and we can't stop talking about Game of Thrones either.

Democracy Burlesque, Chicago only political sketch comedy company is proud to present "Schlock & Awe: Uncultured Sketch Comedy About Pop Culture." It's a full frontal assault on the news we love to hate, and hate to admit we follow.

Assauge your guilt for knowing the sex of Kim & Kanye's baby but not your own Congressman. The Huffington Post is covering it, so it must be news right? So come out on a Tuesday night grab a Dirty Politick martini and join us for an evening of cultural schadenfreude and fun featuring musical guests, stand-up comedy and sketches performed by the Actors of Evil.

Proceeds from each performance benefit local Causes Célèbre (grass roots organizations working to help Chicago Communities)including:
Aids Foundation Chicago
Howard Brown Health Clinics
... and more

Musical Guests include:
Rachel's Surrender
Cover Stories

... and more to be Announced
