Great Guests

Vickie is a fine host, and it's impressive what a diverse group of guests she gets from around the Chicago comedy scene. Would recommend to any Chicago comedians, or anyone looking to find out more about what's going on there.

I've never bothered to leave a review for a podcast before, but I just had to for this one. Vickie's interviews are hilarious and also informative. It's very much worth your time!
