WICF's Weekend Write-Up: Witty, with a Hint of Class
by WomenInComedy - 0

Drumroll, please: dates and headliners are being published THIS VERY WEEK (ahead)! Aaaahhhhh! Commence screaming!

Check out a video from Goltermann and Cuddy's OBV! (with links to more).

Weekly website and show recommendations, hot off the keyboard:

Website of the Week
McSweeney's Internet Tendency
McSweeney's, the internet home of Dave Eggers' publishing house, is a compendium of satire and parody, written by a wide-ranging chorus of today's literary and comedic geniuses, both famous and unknown. Often thought of as an upscale/geekish counterpart to The Onion, we posit that it's the new New Yorker magazine. Written by mildy-unhinged people.

While you're there, check out the links to Believer Magazine, the 826 charities, and this hysterical article by friend-of-the-fest Rachel Klein: The People in an Olive Garden Commercial Share Their Existential Pain.

Show to See
Williams & Martinez, with Bangs at The Playground Theater, Chicago, IL
Williams & Martinez, the duo of Claudia Martinez and Lindsay Williams, met in the Second City Conservatory in 2005. They perform long-form improv weekly at The Playground Theater, along with a revolving cast of special guests.

This week, their guests are a second fab. girl duo, Bangs. Liz Caradonna and Stephanie Jones have been performing improv together for seven years, first in Massachusetts, now in Chicago. Look for an interview with Bangs right here on the WICF site, coming soon! for info.
