DIVIDE & CONQUER is where the Chicago’s hardest-hitting comedians come to make audiences laugh and think. The aim of the show is to get the best comedians to step outside their comfort zones, with thought-provoking stand-up material, to spur real dialogue about current events and issues in the world.
July 13th we're coming back at you with a STACKED line-up, the untouchable Azhar Usman hosts:
DIVIDE & CONQUER is co-created and co-produced by Chicago-based standup comic and satirist Tucker Millett, along with Washington D.C. native and current Laugh Factory Chicago house emcee, David Carter. Millett says of the show: “We invite audiences to come ready to laugh at comedic commentary that challenges the status quo.” Carter adds: “The best joke doesn't divide a crowd at once, it divides a person first. You might reject a joke because the subject matter is untouchable. Now imagine a comedian that can take something dark, something you may disagree with, argue it in a way that reveals some absurdity or hypocrisy, and make you laugh at something you once considered taboo or off-limits. In this way, comedy can overcome divides we draw within ourselves.” Laugh Factory Chicago’s manager, Curtis Shaw Flagg, shares the producers’ enthusiasm for the show: “There is no other comedy show like DIVIDE & CONQUER in the city of Chicago. The Laugh Factory is so excited to be working with such a talented team to build and grow this ‘divisive’ comedy show!”
