ABOUT THIS SHOW
Strip Joker is Chicago’s body positive stand-up comedy show featuring a diverse line-up of comedians from around the country! In the spirit of inclusivity, vulnerability, and uncensored comedy, Strip Joker highlights the voices of queer and POC comedians, and celebrates ALL bodies as the show’s founding mission since 2016.
From the artists: We provide comedians a platform to explore their personal journey of self-love and body positivity on stage as a shared experience for themselves and our audience. We choose to uplift the voices of those who are underrepresented in comedy clubs and provide a space for audience members to hear stand up comedy that isn't sexist, homophobic, transphobic, ableist, or racist—you know, the way it should be. Strip Joker is entirely LGBTQ+ produced by five Chicago comedians, and partnered with the You Are Beautiful campaign to promote this message of body positivity to all performers and patrons of the show.
