Bughouse! #5 2.12.18

Monday, February 12 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

BUGHOUSE! – “Best Debate Show EVER!,” A Local Poll
“Number One Live Lit Thing in History!,” said someone outside the venue

“If you haven’t gone to BUGHOUSE! at Haymarket then get off your butt and GO!” — Moth GrandSlam winner and celebrated author Paul Teodo


Literate Ape presents BUGHOUSE!, a 75-minute show designed to interrogate concepts, proselytize truth, and dissect popular thought through a lens of skeptical artistry. Three bouts, six warriors, three decisions. BUGHOUSE! aims to definitively answer the most (and least) important questions of the day.

VALENTINE’S DAY: Cupid’s Arrow or Hallmark’s PayPal?
Who Got It Right: Orwell or Huxley?
Is Satire Dead in the Age of Trump?

These questions and so many more will be explored, debated and answered by a singular deciding judge (randomly selected from the audience) and soapboxed by some of Chicago’s finest writers, stand up comics, musicians, and poets.

For February 12th the lineup will be:

Lauren Huffman
Phyllis Porsché
David Himmel
Peter Kremidas
Jason Smith
Vincent Truman
