You Had to Be There is a live comedy show that features seasoned performers interacting with random strangers via webcam resulting in hilariously unpredictable exchanges. The show has quickly become an audience favorite and was recently featured on the Bridgetown Comedy Festival in Portland, OR. It’s highly improvisational and always full of surprises.

Florissant & Canfield
By Kristiana Rae Colón
Colliding in the fevered arena of a civil rights renaissance, a newly formed alliance of protesters is forced to put their nascent ideologies to the test in the quest for new visions of justice. Located at the intersections of tear gas and teddy bear memorials, of policeman Darren Wilson and teenager Michael Brown, of looting and liberation, Florissant & Canfield refracts the realities of Ferguson, Missouri, in the wake of the Black Lives Matter movement.

Address: 170 N Dearborn St, Chicago
