John Caponera

When: Thu., Aug. 17 2017

Chicago is to comedians as Kenya is to marathon runners: The place just churns them out. John Caponera cut his comedic teeth in the Windy City before he started getting gigs at clubs around the country. He's a regular in Cleveland, where he performs every few months. He also stars in his own sitcom, The Good Guy, and loves to impersonate former Chicago Cubs announcer Harry Caray. Even though he doesn't sound exactly like the late Caray, he earns the laughs by making Caray sound tipsy and at times confused about what was going on in the game, wondering aloud which bar he'd hit when it was over. Caponera is at Hilarities tonight at 8. He also performs there at 7:30 and 10 tomorrow night and at 7 and 9:30 on Saturday night. Tickets are $23 to $28. (Niesel)
