Christmas Bingo: It's a Ho-Ho-Holy Night New Review (Theater and Comedy) The Short List (Theater) Image Closing (Theater and Galleries)

When: Fridays-Sundays. Continues through Dec. 31 2017

Vicki Quade may have retired from her official responsibilities within the Catholic church long ago, but she's still Mother Superior of the long-running nun-stalgia genre of theater comedy. Since 2011, the Late Nite Catechism coauthor has been hosting various iterations of bingo upstairs at the Royal George Theatre, where she folds in games, cheeky novelty prizes, crowd work, written stand-up bits, and trivia such as the church's contentious history with the movie Miracle on 34th Street. It's not the most on-point stand-up in Chicago (she's just now getting to the "Die Hard is a Christmas movie" bit), but it is a good-natured back-and-forth between Quade and her mostly secular audience. Does it need the intermission or the Easter vigil-length running time? It does not. —Dan Jakes
