She’s a regular at The Chicago Laugh Factory and was recently called “inspiring” by the incomparable Maria Bamford. Whit’s been the requested opener for the likes of Rhea Butcher, Adam Conover, Greg Behrendt (“I want to say, see Whitney Chitwood while you can see her on the cheap, because she’s headed somewhere.”), and the great Eddie Pepitone (“Whitney Chitwood is one of my favorite comics everyone should know.”) Additionally, Whit has been featured by MoveOn.Org, is a frequent contributor to The Paper Machete at Chicago's Green Mill, OUT Chicago on WCPT, and the co-headliner of Is This Us? Are We Here? Comedy Tour?. Whit has headlined festivals like Altercation Comedy Festival (TX), Midwest Queer Comedy Festival (KY), Yuck Fest (IN), The Southwest Chief Comedy Festival (CO), has been featured at Riot LA, 208 Comedy Festival, San Francisco Sketchfest, The Hollywood Improv, and has appeared on "Put Your Hands Together".
AARON PUTNAM got his start in comedy while taking classes at UCB NY. He is also a graduate of David Mamet Atlantic Theatre Company’s two year program. He found out quickly that the only drama he likes is his own, so he quit doing plays and auditioning and dove fully into improv. This is where he learned his most important lesson to this day, and that is: to BOMB! NIGHT AFTER NIGHT! Being the real ass dude he is, he thought it was rude to take all those innocent improvisers with him, so he started doing open mic stand up all over NYC. That was 2011 — flash forward to today: Aaron Putnam is a Chicago-based comic and the founder of Stand Up in Recovery where comics put on shows at recovery centers across the country. He has opened for Doug Stanhope, Erik Griffin, Robert Kelly, and many more. At this point you might be saying “I wanna know about the DRAMA, the RECOVERY, etc.” The truth is on paper and it’s downright scary, but when told on stage, through a mic — hilarious.
Aaron has performed at Gotham Comedy Club, The World Famous Comedy Store in LA.…and a Regular at Laugh Factory Chicago
