Hey guys, we're getting really excited about the triumphant return of Pistol Party next week (Tuesday, November 8th, at Underground Lounge 8pm) and wanted to tell you a little more about our guest host, Chad Briggs. We have been collaborating with Chad over the last month for videos and live bits that we will be unveiling on the 8th. Here's a teaser for one video we're unveiling at the show:
Chad has been performing comedy Chicago for years, and has built up such accolades as Chicago Underground Comedy cast member, Andy Kaufman award finalist, and a regular at the Lincoln Lodge. He is also a previous winner of the comedy talent competition, "Impress These Apes." And now he can add "Hosted Pistol Party" to his resumé. He regularly cracks us up on twitter <@mrchadbriggs>. Here are a few of our recent favorites (as he sometimes refers to them, briggsy-twits):

He also performs regularly as Safety Specialist, D.K. Ediger, which is one of our favorites. D.K. has appeared multiple times at Pistol Party. Here's a PSA from D.K.:
