"I cannot say enough about how fabulous Chicago Comic Book is to work with.  They put on a sold out show for us with the most amazing lineup of comedians. 
I cannot tell you how many people approached me after the show, saying how they hadn't laughed that hard in such a long time and how much fun they had!  They are brilliant to work with and I can't wait until the next show they curate for us.

I was really grateful that we were able to partner with Rick and Chicago Comic Book to help create an incredibly fun evening that our donors thoroughly enjoyed as well as helped us surpass our fundraising goals.  I would give Rick the highest endorsement for his ability to engage a crowd.  I would be happy to speak to anyone interested in knowing more about working with Rick.
