Half comedy show, half rhetorical fight to the death, Arguments & Grievances is live comedy series and podcast featuring comedians debating outlandish topics with audiences deciding the victor.  Live shows run monthly in Chicago, and weekly podcast offerings include bonus content from hosts and post-debate interviews with performers as they tackle such heated issues as: “McRib vs. MacBeth”, “Hugs vs. Drugs”, and “Dr. Dre vs. Dr. Seuss”.

Started in Chicago in 2013, the Arguments & Grievances podcast has appeared at numerous comedy festivals (Crom, Chicago Comedy Exposition, Memphis Comedy Festival, Beast Village), run a successful set of Midwest and east coast tours, and featured at the NerdMelt Showroom in Los Angeles.  Producers also recently expanded the podcast to include content from a Denver incarnation of the show.  The podcast is produced by Chicago comedians Goodrich Gevaart, Kevin Brody, Kevin White, and Zach Peterson.

Particular Show


Each month Andy chooses from his rolodex (Rolex?) of comedy superstars from LA and around the world (New York) to present a hilarious (his words) and very Particular show. Andy’s the host. It’s his party and he will do time in between each comic if he wants to.

Andy Kindler is a frequent guest on The Late Show with David Letterman. He currently recurs on IFC’s Maron, Comedy Central’s Tosh.O and is Mort the Mortician on Fox’s hit animation show Bob’s Burgers.

Retro Rad

You’ve all heard of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, but what about the Tattooed Teenage Alien Fighters from Beverly Hills? Sure, everyone knows the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, but do you know The Cowboys from Moo Mesa? Join Kyle Clark (The Nerdist and This Is Rad! podcasts) as he shares his infinite pop culture knowledge of the ’80s and ’90s with co-host Caitlin Durante (Women in Comedy Festival), who grew up without cable. Together they invite guests to review cartoons, videos, and commercials from Kyle’s curated and obscure collection and decide whether they’re Retro Rad or Retro Bad.

This month we’re screening “Cartoon All-Stars to the Rescue,” an epic PSA from 1990 that explores the exploits of Michael and his descent into drug addiction, which can only be stopped by his corporately branded cartoon pals. It’s exactly what you’d expect from an anti-drug cartoon financed by McDonald’s. We will also screen some of our favorite rad commercials and pit the audience against Kyle in a battle of trivia wits.

With guests Hampton Yount & Jenny Zigrino!
