The Den Theatre Announces Emmy-Nominated Comedian MICHELLE WOLF



The Den Theatre is pleased to announce Emmy Award-nominated comedian Michelle Wolf, playing three stand-up performances May 26 – 28, 2022, on The Heath Mainstage, 1331 N. Milwaukee Ave. in Chicago’s Wicker Park neighborhood. Tickets go on sale on Friday, April 29 at 10 am at thedentheatre.com or by calling (773) 697-3830. Regular mezzanine and VIP table seating are available. Drink service is provided for all seats (two drink minimum).

On the heels of her most recent Netflix special, Michelle Wolf: Joke Show, Wolf is hitting the road with all new material. Watch her work it out in intimate venues while you still can. Come laugh, be offended, be part of the process, be whatever you want to be… It will be fun!

Wolf has quickly become one of the most influential voices in the comedy landscape with the Village Voice calling her “the voice comedy needs right now” and The Daily Beast declaring, “Michelle Wolf is the future of stand-up comedy.” In 2017, Wolf debuted her first hour-long stand-up special, Michelle Wolf: Nice Lady on HBO, for which she received rave reviews and a Primetime Emmy nomination for Outstanding Writing For A Variety Special.

In 2018, she made international headlines as the much buzzed-about headliner of the 2018 White House Correspondents Dinner. Wolf’s other television credits include being an on-air contributor and writer for The Daily Show with Trevor Noah and a writing supervisor and performer on Late Night with Seth Meyers.
