Established February 2016, Strip Joker is Chicago's only body-positive stand up comedy showcase providing an unique space for diverse voices, sexualities, genders, comedic styles, and bodies in various states of undress. This monthly show consistently features a great line up of some of the best local talent, and amazing out of towners for a truly unique show that is beautiful, vulnerable, and hilarious.
Now, in our new home of Mary's Attic, we have added a body positive after-party with music, a Strip Joker photo-booth, and a featured Chicago makers selling their goods. We are proud to provide a brave space for artists to explore and share their struggles of body positivity and self-love featuring a new roster of amazing talent each show!
With this mission, we have done pop-up shows in Detroit, Milwaukee, Memphis, Pittsburg, Madison, South Bend, Louisville, and Columbus. We have also worked with the world renowned Steppenwolf Theatre for PRIDE and Knix Underwear for collaborative pop-ups.
