A Tivoli Bowl Special Event

For the first time in over 5 years, Stand Up Comedy returns to Tivoli Bowl!  For one special night only, come and see hilarious stand up comedy from three amazing comedians! 


Nick Hanek, creator and producer of the podcast, The Comedy Collision, available on YouTube, Spotify and Apple Podcasts as well as a producer of the InsertNameComedy team, will open our show! 

Next is Dapri Ward, who has been tearing up the comedy scene in Texas (and longtime Tivoli Bowl patrons also know that he was a longtime, well beloved manager here at Tivoli Bowl, pre-pandemic), and is making his Chicago comedy debut on March 20th! 

Headlining the night is Central Illinois' very own Larry Smith, who has been seen all around the nation making folks laugh!  Larry also is co-creator of the hilarious podcast "Larry and Zig Ignore a Topic", as well as host of the NPR Illinois show, "Convince Me! with Larry Smith"  

The Wednesday, March 20th show begins at 7pm at the Fun & Games room stage.  $5.00 cover charge (cash only, please) is required for entry to the room where the show is held.  Cover must be paid for Pool Table use March 20th, after 7pm.  No cover required for entry to Tivoli Bowl or the Underground Lounge.  PLEASE NOTE: While the show is open to all, content will likely not be suitable for minors.  21 and over for alcohol purchase, only.
