Luckily for Chicago comedy fans, Dwayne Kennedy has returned to be a presence once again on the city’s stand-up scene. Kennedy is the real deal, and his resume features appearances on “Conan” and “Letterman,” as well as a Showtime special. A polished, intelligent performer, Kennedy’s act deals skillfully with race, making him an important voice in the current political climate. Kennedy is a true professional and his presence on the microphone is impressive, to say the least. This a special opportunity to see a truly hilarious Chicago comedian at Zanies, and should not be missed. (Max Minor)
