When: Open run: Fri-Sat 7:30 and 9:30 PM

Chicago's bustling improv scene got a new neighbor this week when Laugh Out Loud, a suburban comedy staple, opened a charming double-storefront space in North Center. Short, self-described Whose Line Is It Anyway?-style games form the basis both a family-friendly early show and a later "anything goes" set; at the children's show I attended, an able cast of company members and alumni kept the attention of young kids with the sort of quick, silly punch lines the games' premises begged for. I'd be curious to see whether these rudimentary set-ups—rap battles, atypical sports commentary, gibberish guessing games, audience members' day reenactments—mature along with the material later in the night. —Dan Jakes
