3rd Spectacular All Female Showcase!

Two Cookie February brings on the 3rd Spectacular All Female Showcase. The past 2 all female revues have been nothing short of tremendous. We've had comic artists, poets, writers and last year a musician to boot. The bar is set. This year we had to raise the ante.

On Tuesday February 4, at the Hungry Brain 2319 W. Belmont Ave. invited readers include
Janine Phan (producer and co-host of comedy show Entertainment Chicago LIVE),
Stephanie Lane Sutton (writer and co-founder of West Side School for the Desperate),
Jail Flanagain (writer and musician),
Carrie Colpitts (zinester, activist/archivist with the Transgender Oral History Project),
Jill Howe (writer and co-producer of lit series Story Session), and Rosy Phinick (zinester).

Hosted by Johnny Misfit. The show begins at 9pm. Donations appreciated. And as always, there will be free cookies.

Cookie Crumbs, a 2013 Two Cookie Compliation Zine!

Cookie Crumbs, a 2013 Two Cookie Minimum Compilation Zine

To celebrate the 2014 Two Cookie season on Jan 7th, I am working with comic artist Alex Nall to compile a compilation zine of his work. Nall is a regular of the series, showing up and drawing something each month. We agreed to print these images and give them away at the reading. Nall's work includes caricatures of  readers, various doodles, and a depiction of Hungry Brain bar. The image on the right is the cover which showcases a taste of his style (and the variety of cookies we've offered at the readings).

Pick up a copy at the show on the 7th while copies last.
