Hey guys! Just some odds and ends to get you caught up...we're still hard at work on the Sick Day Crawfordsville episode. The locations shots are all done, and we are currently in the process of casting and shooting the studio segments. We don't have any live shows on the books, but we'll be popping up soon. Also, Paul got married! It was one of the most epic nights in our history, as we all celebrated with our friends on the rooftop deck at Navy Pier late into the night. We'll see you soon!

First is a brand-spankin-new one called the Daily Grind. It's based on a scene we used to do live a few years back, but we got to have way more fun with special effects in the filmed version. Check it out here:
Second, here's a video we premiered at the Park West show, featuring everyone's favorite news anchor, Burt McCallister. Look out ladies.
We also have a lot of exciting things for the coming spring (whether it gets here or not). We are very excited to be opening for and collaborating with Chad Briggs for his Chicago Underground Comedy Unlimited show at the Beat Kitchen. That show is FREE so get there early. There are also talks of shows in Indianapolis and beyond, so stay tuned!
Keep it weird,
Think Tank Comedy

That's right, it's a Valentine's Day show for the ages at the historic Park West Theater, this Saturday, Feb. 15th!!! THIS IS BY FAR, THE BIGGEST SHOW WE'VE EVER DONE, and will only be bigger with YOU there. The fabulous Puterbaugh Sisters are hosting the extravaganza that will feature comedy, live music, and a lot of surprises throughout the night. Think Tank will be debuting new material, and pulling from our archives to provide a show all about LOVE (or as much as a bunny seducing a penguin can be about love).
The evening will also feature comedy from Chad Briggs, Drew Frees, Platcow & Friends, and much more (can you say Tom Jones impersonator? We thought you could!). After nearly a 2 hour comedy set, we have music from White Noise, and the legendary guitarist Louis Zagoras with his band Rollover. The entertainment starts at 7:30 SHARP with the comedy coming first, so get there early, and stay there late! Doors open at 6:30pm and seating is general admission. This will be an action packed night and it will keep going until midnight (and maybe beyond!). Tickets to "More Bang for Your Buck Valentine's Variety Show" are a way better gift than an editable arrangements bouquet or a weekend getaway at Sybaris. So CLICK HERE NOW to order tickets! You can also avoid service fees by purchasing tix at the Park West box office or the Vic Theater box office. Don't lose your girlfriend, husband, boyfriend, or wives this year by not taking them to this show!

LA Comedy Fest in just a few weeks! If you're in the LA area or plan to be on Saturday November 23rd, come check out our show. There will be a mix of new and classic Tank material as we perform in the land of beach bros and Hollywood nights for the first time. We're very excited to be jumping back onstage after focusing on video production for the last few months. Stay tuned to this site and our facebook page for details about a pre-festival send off show and party in Chicago. Still ironing out the details but we'll likely be returning to a familiar venue, with familiar PBRs, and some pretty good familiar characters.
November 23rd @ 9pm
Full details including a link for tickets can be found below. If you need to quench your thirst for silliness in the meantime, go slurp down a couple pints of Tank videos on our youtube page.

We're proud to share with you the pilot episode of Sick Day, a morning comedy show like nothing that's ever been produced. Some of Chicago's finest comedians gave their talents to this project and it certainly shows. Sit back and enjoy! Then pass it around, watch the bonus features, tell your neighbors, make a sandwich, and watch it again! The full episode and bonus features are posted on vimeo and you can watch it by clicking HERE!

Shows #1 and #2:
We are midway through our run of Chasing the Hype at the wonderful Den Theater in Wicker Park. That means you only have TWO more chances to catch this brand new show. Chasing The Hype ribs America's up-to-the-nano-second affinity for news and information, no matter how inaccurate or under-reported it may be.
BUY TICKETS HERE FOR THE SHOW THIS SUNDAY (JUNE 16th)
BUY TICKETS HERE FOR CLOSING NIGHT SUNDAY (JUNE 23RD)
We are performing at the city’s premier alternative comedy showcase, Chicago Underground Comedy (ChUC), next Tuesday night at The Beat Kitchen. This is a chance to see Think Tank alongside some of the very best stand-up comics in Chicago.

This past fall we helped write/perform in an original Chicago comedy pilot called Sick Day. The show features some of the biggest talents in Chicago, including Strangers with Candy star Greg HollImon. Sick Day is hosting its premier party at Laugh Factory Chicago on Tuesday, June 25th. In addition to watching the pilot episode of the show, Paul and Kevin from Think Tank will also be making a live appearance as the Fashion Police.
