WIP Theater. 6670 N. Northwest Highway. Chicago. Also on May 21.
This Chicago born and bred comedian has come a long way from his Eddie Murphy impersonations in his elementary school lunchroom.In April 2006 while earning a degree in Sports Management at the University of Illinois, Evans got his first chance to showcase his comedic talents at a variety show.
It was that moment he says, that solidified his dream of wanting to be a comic. From there, in November 2010 Evans went on to become the first winner of WGN Chicago’s Next Big Comic Contest, a staple in Chicago and he’s been steadily touring colleges and comedy clubs across the nation. While he was successful as a comic on his own, his desire to further develop his craft made him enroll in the Second City Training Centers’ Conservatory (Advance Improv/Acting) program.
Evans is spreading his wings further by wearing the hat of Executive Producer of the Calvin Evans Comedy Show, and Co-Producer of the Blind Bet Comedy Show, Thank You Very Much, the Michael Issac Plus Show and You Better Be Funny.
