Chicago comedian Sohrab Forouzesh he came to the US from Iran when he was eight years old, and some of his material is influenced by his experiences as a young immigrant growing up in America with a sense of humor. He’s been labeled an “Iranian comedian that even your racist uncle will love,” which tells us that he had a complicated, hard-fought childhood. Tonight you can see him working in the room at 7pm Zanies (1548 N. Wells), which, in the grand tradition of comedy clubs, still requires its guests to purchase two food or beverage items with your admission fee. It is open to those 21+ ittickets are available here.
