saki, a Logan Square-based record store and art space, is happy to announce the first edition of Creative Control, a variety show hosted and produced by local comedian Joe McAdam, of Second City's The Late Live Show. Creative Control will feature standup, sketch, and music from some of the city's most exciting, unique and talented up and coming performers the final Friday of every month, beginning April 27.

The inaugural show will feature standup comedy from local standouts Cameron Esposito, Joe Fernandez, and Andrew Smreker, with videos and sketches curated by McAdam, and music from hometown power pop heroes Mannequin Men.

While it is the only variety show in Chicago based out of a record store, it's not just the venue that sets Creative Control apart: each comic on the carefully curated lineup is granted complete artistic freedom in a room free of boundaries. As long as it's funny, it flies at Creative Control, making for an unpredictable evening capped off by performances from musical guests handpicked for their live chops.

Creative Control, the new variety show from The Late Live Show's Joe McAdam featuring standup, video, sketch, and music from some of the city's most innovative and exciting performers, takes over saki the last Friday of every month.

The show premiers at saki on Friday, April 27 with guests Mannequin Men, Cameron Esposito, Joe Fernandez, and Andrew Smreker. Doors are at 7pm. The show is BYOB and completely free to attend.
