The stakes are high for any Chicagoland stand-ups who take the stage for this weekly Comedy Bar showcase: Either your punchlines land, or tomatoes land … on you. At the start of the show, audience members are handed one (fake) tomato each and are encouraged to pelt the comedian they like least. By the show’s end, the comedian with the fewest tomatoes is crowned the winner. Any comedian who’s pummeled by more than 10 tomatoes will be immediately carted away, like so much old produce.
