Late Late Breakfast is the perfect comedy show for a drunken, weird Saturday afternoon. Hosted and co-created by lovable scamps Tyler Jackson and Danny Maupin, Late Late Breakfast is a fast-paced mixed-format standup show that the Chicago Reader simply called "Chaos."
Every show is a wildly different experience and features a dizzying array of comedians telling jokes while facing randomized themed challenges that could be anything from having an impromptu puppet show or pie fight or Easter Pageant, to giving a guided tour in a trolley car or smashing fruit like Gallagher or pitching in a baseball game involving the entire audience.
Expect anything and everything out of the ordinary, all of it held together by solid, hilarious standup comedy.
Our show has been featured on NYCF, Bridgetown Comedy Festival, The Comedy Exposition, Orlando Indie Comedy Fest, Green Gravel Comedy Fest, Crom Comedy Fest, Hell Yes Fest and more.
Our Chicago show is typically held the first Saturday of every month at The Hideout and the last Saturday of every month in New York City at Creek and Cave unless otherwise noted. Our NYC branch is hosted by comedians Tom Thakkar and Tommy McNamara! Late Late Breakfast is also produced by Liz Maupin.
