Please join us at Chicago's newest performance venue dedicated to solo performance, an intimate 46-seat theater tucked away inside one of the city's legendary Irish pubs. 


Places I Can't Return To

In this interactive, multimedia performance of Sean Flannery's recently published book, the audience will choose the stories and order of telling via questionnaire. Each chapter is a place he cannot return to, usually because the people who live or work there warned him to never return. Or sometimes because those places are now in the bottom of a lake. The book intertwines Sean's own outrageous stories with funny asides on the history of these places. Like a travel book, if the author only stayed at places that have since been demolished. Or perhaps it's more like a memoir if the author was so drunk, he accidentally wrote a travel book.



Renowned stand-up comedian, editor of Flannery's book, and Wait, Wait ... Don't Tell Me panelist Adam Burke will open the show.




The easiest way to describe Sean Flannery is: he’s attended the wrong wedding (twice).That mostly sums it up. Sean hosts and created The Blackout Diaries. He’s appeared on Comedy Central, NPR, Sirius Radio. The Chicago Reader also named Sean "Best Drunk in Chicago". He and his wife are having very different reactions to that award. Sean's first book, “Places I Can’t Return To” debuted this spring.




  • General admission seating. Doors at 6:30 PM.
  • Show will run 70 minutes without intermission.
  • Entire venue is fully accessible.
  • Cash and Venmo/Zelle sales at the door if tickets are still available.
  • Dining available downstairs before performance. Drinks can be brought into theater.
  • Free parking in nearby lot and metered on the street.



“Sean’s book is great. Buy it!”

– Robert Smigel

 

"The most unbelievable part of this book is that Sean is still alive to share these stories. No amount of Sunset Strip rock star debauchery can hold a candle, entertainment-wise, to Sean's Midwestern, shrugged-shouldered, "fuck it, let's see what happens" blind sprint through life.""

--Kyle Kinane

 

"Before I really started stand-up in Chicago I was attending shows around the city (casing the joint) and found myself at Chicago Underground Comedy. After watching a few of the comics, I flippantly thought to myself, “I can do this!” But then Sean went up onstage and lit it up. He was so, so funny and completely original. I conceded, “Okay, I can’t do that.” But it was actually comforting to know there was someone that good in Chicago to look up to, and to strive to be as funny."

--Beth Stelling
