Good Evening with Pat Whalen is a sold out show! 
There is a chance that some last minute tickets may open up at the door on the evening of the performance. We will start a standby list at the 1700 Box Office an hour before the show, at 8pm. At that point, we will operate on a first-come-first-serve basis to get anyone who we can in to see the show. No guarantees but we will try our best!

Good Evening with Pat Whalen has been Chicago's only late-night talk-show news-alternative for over three years. Combining civic and state-wide issues with the comedic format of late-night, Pat has interviewed some of the city's movers and/or shakers, including: Debra Shore at the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District, Illinois comptroller Susana Mendoza, gubernatorial candidate and State Senator Daniel Biss, journalists Amanda Vinicky and Paris Schutz, candidate for lieutenant governor Ra Joy, Alderman Scott Waguespack, State Representative Will Guzzardi, and more! 

On top of that, Good Evening has hosted some of the city's most talented up-and-coming musical acts and entertainers; Ric Wilson, White Mystery, Mother Nature, Freesole Chicago, Avantist, Odinaka Ezeokoli, Meghana Indurti, Dewayne Perkins, Sarah Squirm, and many more!

Along with monologue jokes, characters, desk bits, interactive games, giveaways and prizes, Pat and his team strive to leave their audience entertained, educated, and engaged - the ideal trifecta otherwise known as the Best Evening Ever (#besteveningever)!
