What is Blackout Diaries?

The Blackout Diaries is a comedy show where standup comedians, plus 'regular' people (cops, firefighters, teachers, etc) tell hilarious drinking stories. Then you, the audience, can dive even deeper by asking questions to the performers about their stories.

The show has been a critics' pick by all major Chicago periodicals and has been featured on NPR, Comedy Central and more.  Its host and creator, Sean Flannery, was even named the best drunk in Chicago by The Chicago Reader, though we are still trying to figure out what that award means and if it should be considered an accolade.

Come for some of the funniest drinking stories you've heard.  And stay for the Malort! (show is sponsored by Malort and even includes a free taste)
