CHICAGO — If you’re a fan of comedy, then you have plenty of choices this weekend when it comes to seeing a show.

A number of performers are taking the stage around the Chicago area to entertain audiences from the city to the suburbs. That includes Pat McGann, Marlon Wayans, Kelsey Cook, and others figure to get a laugh or two out of the crowds.

Along with comedy, he takes a look at a few concerts, musicals, plays, and other things to keep you occupied the next few days.
