SPIRALING, created by Cassie Ahiers and Grace Palmer, is an offbeat sketch comedy pilot that explores confidently misguided people. Each sketch features the downward spiral of its characters, from an ambitious NBA reporter to an overzealous ad duo on the verge of a social face plant. The pilot’s roster features some of the freshest comedians from Shrill (Hulu), Mrs. Fletcher (HBO), Southside (Comedy Central), Russian Doll (Netflix) and more.

Cigarette Sandwich:Live-Stream Power Hour
LAST SATURDAY of each month. Next date: Saturday, Jan. 30th
The Annoyance Theatre's latest live stream is a watch-along party of snack sized videos submitted by local comedians. Cigarette Sandwich (Chicago's most sketch comedy group) will host in traditional power hour style, screening one video every minute with shots of beer in between. The hosts will be doing some live comedy and audience participation via chat, so... PLAY ALONG! Time has always been a construct, but now it really feels that way. The Power Hour count down gives time meaning again. Grab a few brews, and drink away the chaos, one minute at a time. Watch show on
