The beginning of the end of the Lincoln Lodge’s eighth season features a trio of local comedians as unique and different from each other as they are hilarious. Joe Killgallon, as his names suggests, is Chicago Irish, and his heritage, ruminations on sports, booze and politics, and trademark snark are reminiscent of Denis Leary, and his shock of blonde hair and ongoing struggles with vice only help contribute to the comparison. Jet Eveleth is best known as an improviser and teacher at i.O., and her talent and good looks have caused many a comedy student crush. Very funny, with a razor sharp sense of timing, Eveleth’s style promises to be a perfect fit over at the Lodge. Jordan Roberts is a member of Chicago comedian collective Blerds.com, serving as their resident filmmaker and his work with local legend T.J. Miller was no doubt a contributor to Miller’s recent rise to national fame. A good rule of thumb is that if a comedian is a member of Blerds, they’re talented, and Roberts is no exception.
