How To Get Booked On Shows at The Lincoln Lodge:
As you can see from our calendar the Lincoln Lodge Theater has many different shows! Each show is produced and booked by a different producer and just to make it 'fun' each producer has their own method and channels for booking their shows. The BEST way to get booked on any given show is to reach out to the producer directly via their social media channels. But how to do that? Good old Google comes to the rescue as you type in the name of the show in the search engine - possibly adding the words 'Comedy' and Chicago' to give the search engine a head start?, and it may return a website, Twitter or Instagram account through which contact can be made. You can also type the name in to Facebook search to find their page. Best of luck in your quest for stage time!
The Lincoln Lodge Booking Philosophy:
The Lincoln Lodge’s primary focus is on nurturing upcoming local talent so the majority of our bookings are based on scouting local open mikes and showcases and watching comedians work with live audiences. Your best chance to get booked at the Lodge is for us to see you consistently out performing and developing your skills. We also enjoy guest bookings from out of town performers so if you’re passing through Chicago and we can’t get to see you perform live please send a link to a 5-10 min clip and biography for us to review. A quick glance at our alumni page will also reveal that we love bringing in the most innovative and exciting headliner talent too. If you represent a nationally touring comedian and would like us to book your client please drop us a line with a proposal outline and we’ll see if we can strike up a deal!
