Comedy Show – Reena Calm
May 18 @ 8:00 pm$15
Reena Calm was made in Israel and raised near Boston. Obsessed with comedy she moved to Chicago and made a name for herself as a favorite in one of the best comedy cities in the world, as a regular at the Laugh Factory, Zanies and The Comedy Bar, and a teacher at Second City. She quickly became one of the most respected and requested comedians in the Midwest, and is now a nationally touring headliner. Reena is a wordsmith whose material is autobiographical, silly, and charmingly inappropriate, pulling from a lifetime of questionable choices.
Speaking of questionable choices, for a while she was the only woman in the U.S. living on the road as a full-time stand-up comedian. Traveling around the country in a converted minivan, this pun-slinger has made audiences laugh in all 50 States. Full of wild tales from the road, Reena’s debut album “CALMEDY” was #1 on the comedy charts, and can be heard on Sirius XM.
Reena has been a frequent guest on WGN Radio, featured at Limestone, RiOT LA and so many cool festivals, has been on the Doug Loves Movies podcast, and was a Comic of The Week on The Jackie & Laurie Show. She’s opened for comedy icons like Arsenio Hall, Maria Bamford, Eddie Pepitone, Laurie Kilmartin, Doug Benson and many more.
Check out her book “Once A Pun A Time…Legend of a Sighs Queen” on Amazon. Reena’s been called “a one-woman punk band of a comedian” by Jeff Bailey, “everything comedy should be” by Sam Tallent, one of “the best independent comics in the country” by Clearwater Comedy, and “terrific!” by the Chicago Tribune. She hopes to do a show in your town soon, and would love to sleep in your finest parking lot. Follow her on Instagram to ride along on her travels @ReenaCalm #ViewnitedStates.
