The Great Think Tank Holiday Tour

Hold on your hats it's getting crazy out there, people!  This is always an insane time of year, and you just can't help but feel the giving spirit of the holidays.  Think Tank is no different and have been using our talents for various good causes the past few weeks..  Last month we performed to a packed Stage773 house at a benefit for Between Friends, an anti-violence agency here in Chicago.  It was a great night which also featured magician the Amazing Tomas, the kates, and was hosted by Chicago's NBC5 Entertainment reporter, Leeann Trotter.

Also this past Tuesday, December 13th, we held our annual Pistol Party benefit show.  This year's proceeds went to the Mae Bell Ward Foundation for Alzeimer's research, which was founded by our dear friend, Terron Edmonds.  Through money collected at the door, wristband sales, and a matched contribution, we were able to raise over $700 on a glorious evening of comedy and collaboration with Chicago stand up, Will Miles.

Speaking of Will, here's a video we made with him that we debuted at Pistol (you should recognize Will from the Scared White People video):

We're sure you agree, Will IS pretty cool. that 2011 is almost in the books, we're going to hole ourselves away to keep cracking on this PILOT WE'VE BEEN TELLING YOU ABOUT and get to work writing a new show for our Chicago Sketchfest show on January 13th (CLICK HERE FOR TICKETS, IT WILL SELL OUT QUICK!!!!).  2011 has been kind, and 2012 looks to be the year that we finally take over the world (before it ends hopefully, damn Mayan calendar ruining everyone's plans).  Stay tuned for new videos!  We'll probably crap out a couple of more before the New Year.  Godspeed! and NEVER GIVE UUPPPPPPPP!!!
