Laser Comedy Show

21+ over only, sorry bebes.
Nasty, Brutish & Short (NBS) is a Chicago-based cabaret of contemporary short-form puppet and object-based theater for adult audiences. The cabaret provides an opportunity for professional quality puppet artists to perform new work, fosters creative exchange between puppet artists of different generations and specialties, and introduces audiences to innovative and compelling puppet theatre.
Admission is free, though a hat will most definitely be passed around.
This event is funded in part by the Puppet Slam Network (a project of IBEX Puppetry)
