Yes, it’s not-so-coincidentally located about a block from Second City, but don’t be too quick to assume you’ll get sloppy seconds at Zanies. This comedy club holds its own, bringing in national headliners (Ari Shaffir of Comedy Central’s This is Not Happening was recently there) as well as hilarious locals. Plus, theme nights dedicated to female, queer, and amateur comedians mix things up. Tickets generally run around $25 (plus two item purchase requirement), but check local sites like Groupon.com and Goldstar.com for half-off specials.
