After shows in Seattle, Los Angeles and Denver were received with lines wrapping around the block, Leafly, the world’s cannabis information resource, will continue its cannabis comedy tour with shows in Chicago, Toronto and San Francisco. The first stop will take place in Chicago and will be headlined by Chris D’Elia with special guest Ron Funches, both of NBC’s “Undateable.”
“Comedy and cannabis have always been a natural combination,” said Paul Campbell, Leafly’s Vice President of Marketing. “We’re excited to move beyond stereotypical cannabis culture and showcase comedians who appeal to the wide variety of adults who enjoy cannabis. It’s clear from the popularity of these shows that the public agrees – we’ve come a long way since Cheech and Chong.”
Each show is free of charge and requires that fans RSVP, with tickets distributed on a first-come, first-served basis, subject to venue capacity. Local comedians in each city will serve as the opening act for each show. The Chicago show will be opened by comedian Brandon Wardell, the host of Comedy Central’s Snapchat.
Details on the upcoming show are as follows:
- Wednesday, April 20, Chicago, IL
Headliner: Chris D’Elia
Special Guest: Ron Funches
Venue: The Vic Theater, 3145 N Sheffield Ave, Chicago, IL 60657
