stand-up Comedians & Open mic social

Enjoy some comedians (line up is set) and an alum open mic contest at our 'Once Upon A Time In Hyde Park' event at the Parkside Lounge in the LES.  Drink ticket included in ticket; register a guest online and you will get 3 drink tickets in total!

We heard everyone enjoyed hanging and socializing at the 'Not So Young Alumni' event of March, 2018.  Then we confirmed that everyone likes live performances like the ones seen at the 'From Chicago, In Brooklyn' of last October.

Well, we are back again with 'Once Upon A Time in Hyde Park', a chance to catchup with friends and maybe make new ones.  We have a special drink offer: if you register a guest online, you will get an additional drink ticket on top of the 2 provided for your registrations (limit of 3 in total).

The show will feature:

jarcuriresizedThe Chicago Tribune calls Jeff Arcuri “a joke machine,” but he’s not! He’s a person! Jeff has appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Comedy Central’s Roast Battle, Laughs! on Fox, SiriusXM, and a plethora of comedy festivals around the country.

Growing up withamyshanker the looks of a prepubescent Latino boy and a family that her friends dubbed "The Jewish Griswalds," Amy Shanker had no choice but to go into standup comedy.

Her dry comedic style and edgier perspective stem from her time as an inner-Chicago high school English teacher. Amy's a regular at Laugh Factory, Zanies, and New York Comedy Club.

And, there will be an open mic contest where you can:

  • Read out aloud your college application essay

  • Tell a funny, poignant or exciting campus story

  • Recreate a UC fight song, fraternity/sorority sing, 'Off Off Campus' or theater production

If you can perform to a live audience of fellow alums, try to convince them that you deserve to win the prize (to be announced later).

Seating is not unlimited, so register now to be sure you will join us in what will be the epic UCACNYC event of May 2019!
