According to a recent University of Illinois study, as well as according to anyone who has ever read a book about American History, Chicago is America's most corrupt city.  http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/02/15/chicago-most-corrupt-city_n_1278988.html Interestingly enough in a recent comedy poll, Comedians At Law were voted most potentially corrupt comedy group.  With 6 law degrees and decades of combined experience trolling around the comedy club scene, Comedians At Law can definitely give ...

The Oscar's -- done. The NBA All-Star Game -- done. Baseball season -- hasn't started yet. What is there for you to do? Answer: Lawmaggedon.  A comedic tour de force that's sweeping the nation.  And, it's stopping in Chicago on Tuesday, February 28 at 9:30 pm at Zanie's. Don't miss it!  These people didn't and look how hard they're laughing: ... [click here to read more]
We get asked a lot of questions about our tour, so we thought we would do a fictional Q&A and give you the low down. When do you arrive in the city your performing in? Usually we get there a few hours before the show, enough time to shower and shave...of course we never do. How much do you make touring? Somewhere in the neighborhood of a million dollars a show. Well, if a million dollars was New York City, our neighborhood would technically be more like Utica, but we'd still tell people we ... [click here to read more]
Last night was the first show of our six-city- tour, Lawmageddon. To call it a success would be an understatement. Comedians-at-Law played to a sold-out crowd and the thunder was brought. We want to thank everyone who came out to our show, and a special thank you to iTwin, our sponsor who has seen the genius in what we are doing. You can learn more about the USB based iTwin device at www.itwin.com. Our whirlwind tour of legal HA-HA is far from over. CAL is on a collision course with Chicago that ... [click here to read more]
It's Fat Tuesday, a day when people have traditionally partied and eaten in preparation for the beginning of Lent.  However, this Fat Tuesday has special significance because tomorrow represents the beginning of Lawmageddon.  Ever since HBO's show Treme seemed to take all the fun out of Mardi Gras (and watching television) this time of year has needed an infusion of fun.  So perhaps people are partying extra hard because they know they will have to give up something for the next 40 days.  But ...

The House of Representatives passed the extension of the payroll tax holiday Friday, voting overwhelmingly to continue the 2 percent break and extend emergency unemployment benefits for the rest of the year. Just in the nick of time. We obviously didn't want anyone coming to our show that could not afford it...but now that the government has you covered to the tune of $400 a week, there shouldn't be any problem right?  We checked the rules and regulations about what you can spend your unemployment ...

With the ceremonial lowering of flags being a hot topic this week, CAL would like to address another occasion that deserves some official notice. The release of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition. There was a time when young men all over the country would await the release of this edition with baited breath. It was a time of revelry and joy. Betwixt the Superbowl and Opening Day, it gave us something to do, something to anticipate.(Sure there's Hockey and basketball, but who cares about them?) Now, ...

Happy Valentine's Day from Comedians At Law.  While you are busy purchasing flowers, chocolates, dinner, gifts and Plan B pills we would like to offer some more practical advice the the men (after all we pay for everything today) to make sure that your Valentine's Day does not become a litigious nightmare: 1) No engagement rings today. Don't even give her one on President's Day.  Pick a day that means nothing.  On the plus side you will have that day to yourself as a special day, rather than ...

Did you ever wonder why they don't give a Grammy Award for oral argument or for legal briefs read aloud like slam poetry? Neither did we. On the other hand, it might be fun to have an awards night for lawyers where people who can't stand each other, dress up in crazy outfits and engage in hours of mutual self-congratulation and adulation. No, you're right.  That would suck too. But, what would be fun -- what WILL be fun -- is the Comedians at Law "Lawmaggedon" Stand Up Comedy Tour that will ... [click here to read more]
The government decided to cut a deal with 5 of the nation's largest banks  (Bank of America, Citigroup, JPMorgan Chase, Wells Fargo and Ally Financial) to the tune of $25 billion dollars to settle that whole fraudulent mortgage thing that destroyed our economy. Sounds like big money, but when it boils down to it, it's still a bit of too little, too late. It will offer relief for those struggling with impeding foreclosure in the form of principal reduction and partial loan forgiveness. However, ... [click here to read more]
