Promoter Ordinance Would Affect Comedy, Too

By Margaret Lyons in News on May 13, 2008 4:34PM

Well, that anti-promoter ordinance the City's kicking around sounds worse with every passing second. The vague language means it may limit live comedy in Chicago, too. You can hear Alderman Eugene Schulter try to defend the ordinance on 848 from this morning, but we'll warn you that it'll just make you grumpy.

Call your alderman, or plan on going to the City Council meeting tomorrow at 10am.

update: Some folks are trying to rally 100 people against the ordinance to go to the City Council meeting.
