Maggiano’s Vernon Hills Serves Something Funny

Serve Something Funny at Maggiano's Vernon Hills

Maggiano’s Little Italy in Vernon Hills, Illinois is an excellent stand-up comedy dinner-and-a-show event in the North suburbs of Chicago.

Serve Something funny, produced by Funnier By The Lake Comedy and Best Corporate Comedy, is a monthly stand-up comedy dinner-and-a-show that continues a great tradition of comedy in Chicago, without the hassle and expense of traveling to and from the city. The stand up comedy showcase, which debuted in October of 2018, delivers the same caliber of stand-up comedy that you will find in big cities like Chicago, New York, Las Vegas and Los Angeles. Comedians booked on The Comedy Nosh showcases are professionals that regularly appear throughout Chicago and across the nation.

In addition to the stellar lineups of comedians, attendees are served a full dinner, from a special menu, including wine and dessert.
