Do you have a story from your past that makes you feel weird? We Still Like You is a show centered around sharing those stories in the middle of an apartment whilst surrounded by friends and strangers. Featuring a lineup of some of Chicago’s best comedians, improvisers, storytellers, bartenders, etc., as well as stories from the audience, We Still Like You is all about sharing. Because if we’re all assholes, none of us are.
The stories told at WSLY involve conquering our embarrassment and shame. Every show is BYOB and free beer is always provided to the audience, so that while they sit or stand, crammed into the intimate atmosphere of a home, they can cheers each storyteller following the tale with a hearty, “WE STILL LIKE YOU!”
We Still Like You is based in Chicago, but also has a chapter in Los Angeles. WSLY has been featured show in The Green Gravel Comedy Festival, Hell Yes Fest, The Orlando Indie Comedy Festival, and Bird City Comedy Festival. WSLY has appeared in apartments, theaters, and backyards in Brooklyn, Los Angeles, Chicago, St. Louis, Lawrence, Austin, New Orleans, Portland, and more.
It’s also Chicago’s best and only show that doubles as a party. This show is 100% show and 100% party, and usually after around half a dozen or more stories have passed, and everyone has had a decent amount of booze, the show naturally transitions (or devolves) into a full-on party.
We Still Like You is the first Saturday of every month in Chicago. Look up “We Still Like You” on Facebook to learn the location (as it sometimes bounces around Chicago, just for fun), and to check if we’ll be in a city near you soon.
