The Roast of Darth Vader

On December 4th, let the hate flow through you-- because we're roasting the big bad dad of the Star Wars universe, Darth Vader. Chicago's best comedians (and some amazing special guests) star as Yoda, Leia, Kylo Ren, and more, staying on target to roast Anakin Skywalker like so much lava. This show is a must-see for any Star Wars fan. Come or come not. There is no try. Character Assassination is a roast show at Chicago's Laugh Factory that puts famous historical figures and beloved fictional personalities in the hotseat. Stacked against a ruthless panel of their peers, these roasts turn into a battle of the wits limited only by the imagination. Every show features top comedians, writing and performing in character and in costume as a wild roasting dais of popular icons with one goal in mind- to tear each other to shreds. Character Assassination is a sister show of Character Assassination Louisville, and is sponsored by the wonderful Fantasy Costumes. Age restriction: 18 years and over 2 drink minimum per person (can be non-alcoholic or alcoholic beverage)
