New Videos from Think Tank Comedy

Inline image 2
Greetings from Think Tank!! Based on the weather forecast for the next couple of days, you could probably stand to laugh a little, and we're here to help! Despite our inability to leave the house, we have been very busy this winter. Our dreams came true with a Valentine's Day Show at Park West, and we've been hard at work in front of the camera as well. In fact, we have a couple of new videos to roll out for you right now.

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!

THIS SATURDAY!!! THE BEST VALENTINE'S DAY SHOW IN WORLD HISTORY!!!

Inline image 2

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 BriggsDrew FreesPlatcow & 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!

Think Tank at Chicago Sketchfest


Think Tank will be bringing our antics to the Chicago Sketch Comedy Festival Stage, this Saturday, Jan. 11th at 7pm. This is our 7th (!?!) year doing this fest, and it is always one of our biggest, most fun shows of the year. You can buy tickets HERE. You can avoid service fees by picking up tickets at the theater, or by simply calling and ordering 773-327-5252. After the show, we have set up a deal at Trader Todd's for $3 drafts. We will be heading there for the second half of the Colts/Patriots game. Paul (a Patriots fan) and Brent (a Colts fan) may hate each other while the game is on, but rest assured, their friendship will remain intact afterward. Hope to see you there!

Think Tank performing live at LA Comedy Fest

We're loading up the wagon and heading out to LA for the 14th edition of the 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. 

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.

New Think Tank Sketch Revue, "CHASING THE HYPE" Coming in June!!!!

Inline image 1

Think Tank is excited to announce an all new full length sketch comedy revue, Chasing the Hype, at the Den Theatre, Sundays, June 2nd-23rd!  With our trademark style of silly satire and bizarre scenarios, Think Tank pokes fun at America’s obsession with reporting the news as quickly and bombastically as possible. With elements of vaudeville, silent film, and multimedia, Chasing the Hype presents a portrait of reactionary news coverage, along with a crop of scenes designed to poke fun at the sillier aspects of every-day life.

Shows will be at 7:30 at the amazing Den Theatre at 1333 N. Milwaukee, in Wicker Park. There is a fantastic bar in the lobby, so come early, and stay late! YOU CAN NOW BUY TICKETS BY CLICKING RIGHT HERE. There are only four shows so get them early!!! Be sure to like/follow us on facebook and twitter for a chance to win some tickets and/or other prizes!

Also, in case you missed it, we just released a brand spankin' new video "Celebrity Intervention," where "Dave" finds out his TRUE identity. WATCH IT NOW!!!


See you real soon!

Brent, Kevin, Paul, & Peter
