If you Google the last name "Gersen", musical comedian Eric Gersen does not come up on the first page of results. This wouldn't be that big of a deal if it weren't for that fact that some of the people who DO show up include: a failed meth dealer, an obscure sci-fi protagonist, and Eric's actual brother. Watch as Eric tries to rectify this gross oversight and get on the first page of results by doing the most difficult task imaginable - performing 25 to 30 minutes of scripted comedy (almost) by himself.
The Jen and Laura Sketch Show
Jen and Laura met waiting tables in a joint where the mimosas were bottomless and the bulls were mechanical. Making each other laugh to endure the long hours and stiffed tips, it was comedy love at first joke. Jen and Laura have been writing and performing sketches for nine years. With bold characters and a female lens, they enjoy making audiences laugh until they snort and making each other laugh until someone pees their pants. They are absolutely thrilled to be making their Chicago Sketch Comedy Festival debut.
