Chicago comedy fans have the chance to meet the cast of TBS' latest sitcom, "Sullivan & Son," just a week after its July 19 premiere.
Series star Steve Byrne and co-stars Owen Benjamin, Roy Wood Jr. and Ahmed Ahmed bring their "Sullivan & Son" Tour to UP Comedy Club at 8 p.m. July 26. The cast mates and comedy club headliners will perform their standup for Chicago fans.
To get the $22 tickets, go to Up Comedy Club's website. The club is located at 230 W. North Ave, 3rd Floor in Piper's Alley.
In "Sullivan & Son," Byrne plays Steve Sullivan (Steve Byrne), a corporate attorney who becomes disillusioned with his life in New York and decides to move back to Pittsburgh and take over the family bar. Steve's best friends, Owen (Benjamin), Roy (Wood Jr.) and Ahmed (Ahmed), keep the bar in business by spending most of their time there.
The series, which is executive produced by Vince Vaughn, Peter Billingsley and showrunner Rob Long, has a definite "Cheers" vibe. (That shouldn't be too surprising; Long worked on "Cheers.")
Dan Lauria and Jodi Long plays Steve's Irish father, Jack, and Korean mother, Ok Cha. The series co-stars Vivian Bang, Brian Doyle Murray, Christine Ebersole and Valerie Azlynn.
