Let's try something new

Over the past three years of putting on Comedy Hack Day we've had countless requests to bring CHD to your city. Yes, even yours! Unfortunately the highly annoying limitations of “space” and “time” prevented us from fulfilling those requests.  Instead of leaving it at that, we decided to open up Comedy Hack Day and let you organize your own version of the event.  

The first of these experiments is going to take place in one of our favorite cities Chicago on Saturday and Sunday, October 3-4, 2015.

CHD Chicago is organized independently—with a little bit of guidance from us—by the bright, mostly smiling faces you see below (and also the rest of their non-face parts).
