Essay Fiesta Visits The Chicago Fringe Festival

Yo! Essay Fiesta fans! The first-ever Chicago Fringe Festival is officially underway in the Pilsen neighborhood, boasting a bazillion shows on a gazillion stages from all over the country, world and stratosphere!

Last night Essay Fiesta’s Alyson Lyon went to the Casa Aztlan and saw The Steve Show. The Steve Show is written by and stars Jason Economus. Jason is a very talented Chicagoan who performs frequently at the Paper Machete, Entertaining Julia and in various plays.  The show is absolutely hilarious and features a plot twist you could not predict!

If you like your comedy raw and honest, you will love this show! Get your butt in a seat! The show runs until Sept. 5.

And if that’s not enough fringe for you, check out Cabinalysis…or, Build Your Own Damn Cabin!, a spoken word piece by Larry Kerns who is affiliated with our friends at 2nd Story and This Much Is True!
