18 - Kelsie Huff

Meet Kelsie Huff, stand up comedian, storyteller and all around swell gal . In this episode, Kelsie makes us laugh 'til our sides hurt while talking about teaching, producing and performing stand up in the city of Chicago and how she is helping to shape the Chicago comedy scene.

Kelsie was jealous of our Your Chicago t-shirts,
so she got creative with her very special YC fridge magnet

We also discuss the grocery store gem, Harvestime, calling the cops on your neighbors, the Chicago Seven and yes...Arden's teenage appearance on This American Life. We're waiting for you to return the favor, Ira Glass, and come on our show.

Find everything that Kelsie is up to at
