Brent Weinbach at the Lincoln Lodge

Comedian Brent Weinbach's latest album, "The Night Shift", is what one might expect from an Andy Kaufman Award-winner. It's odd, very odd, but funny, and it goes all over the place. Stand-up bits are interspersed with cracked anecdotes told in a gravely NPR-esque voice, a few phone conversations are thrown in and to top it off there are some Cole Porter type piano tunes as well. The album is a grab bag of crassness, creepiness, sincerity, and foreign language lessons (I'm going to say "pinatas" and hope that at some point you will know what I'm talking about, and come back and laugh at this reference.), which is a lot to digest while listening to on your iPod, and might just be better served live.

Fortunately for Chicagoans, Brent Weinbach will be in town this evening kicking off the tenth season of comedy at the Lincoln Lodge. The Lincoln Lodge is a premier showcase for local comedians and variety acts, and to celebrate their tenth season they're bringing in headliners and Lincoln Lodge alumni. The show is tonight at 9:00 pm at the Lincoln Lodge (4008 N. Lincoln Ave), and tickets can be purchased for $10 here or by calling (773) 251-1539.
