As is tradition, the Lincoln Lodge is closing its seventh season with a series of “Dwight Nights, ” featuring performances by the Lodge’s most popular performers. West Side native Lil’ Rel, one of Chicago’s best- known comics, makes his appearance tonight alongside conquering hero T..J. Miller. Having been on P. Diddy’s “Bad Boys of Comedy,” “Last Comic Standing” and “Comicview,” chances are you’ve seen Lil’ Rel before and just didn’t know it. Not only important because he’s hilarious and successful, Lil’ Rel stays true to the city, hosting his own show on the side, and this is a great opportunity to see him up North. Headliner T.J. Miller makes his triumphant return, recently performing on his own sitcom and having starred in “Cloverfield.” Miller was one of the city’s hardest working comics, and his success is good for the stand-up scene. Known for his energy, it should be interesting to see how amped he’ll be in his return, juiced on his recent well-deserved success. Comedians Jessica Halem, Tyler Kroll and magician David Kovac also perform. (Max Minor)
