Think Tank performing live at LA Comedy Fest

We're loading up the wagon and heading out to LA for the 14th edition of the LA Comedy Fest in just a few weeks! If you're in the LA area or plan to be on Saturday November 23rd, come check out our show. There will be a mix of new and classic Tank material as we perform in the land of beach bros and Hollywood nights for the first time. We're very excited to be jumping back onstage after focusing on video production for the last few months. Stay tuned to this site and our facebook page for details about a pre-festival send off show and party in Chicago. Still ironing out the details but we'll likely be returning to a familiar venue, with familiar PBRs, and some pretty good familiar characters. 

Full details including a link for tickets can be found below. If you need to quench your thirst for silliness in the meantime, go slurp down a couple pints of Tank videos on our youtube page.

Shows #1 and #2:
We are midway through our run of Chasing the Hype at the wonderful Den Theater in Wicker Park. That means you only have TWO more chances to catch this brand new show. Chasing The Hype ribs America's up-to-the-nano-second affinity for news and information, no matter how inaccurate or under-reported it may be.


Show #3:
We are performing at the city’s premier alternative comedy showcase, Chicago Underground Comedy (ChUC), next Tuesday night at The Beat Kitchen. This is a chance to see Think Tank alongside some of the very best stand-up comics in Chicago.


Show #4: 
This past fall we helped write/perform in an original Chicago comedy pilot called Sick Day. The show features some of the biggest talents in Chicago, including Strangers with Candy star Greg HollImon. Sick Day is hosting its premier party at Laugh Factory Chicago on Tuesday, June 25th. In addition to watching the pilot episode of the show, Paul and Kevin from Think Tank will also be making a live appearance as the Fashion Police.

New Think Tank Sketch Revue, "CHASING THE HYPE" Coming in June!!!!

Inline image 1

Think Tank is excited to announce an all new full length sketch comedy revue, Chasing the Hype, at the Den Theatre, Sundays, June 2nd-23rd!  With our trademark style of silly satire and bizarre scenarios, Think Tank pokes fun at America’s obsession with reporting the news as quickly and bombastically as possible. With elements of vaudeville, silent film, and multimedia, Chasing the Hype presents a portrait of reactionary news coverage, along with a crop of scenes designed to poke fun at the sillier aspects of every-day life.

Shows will be at 7:30 at the amazing Den Theatre at 1333 N. Milwaukee, in Wicker Park. There is a fantastic bar in the lobby, so come early, and stay late! YOU CAN NOW BUY TICKETS BY CLICKING RIGHT HERE. There are only four shows so get them early!!! Be sure to like/follow us on facebook and twitter for a chance to win some tickets and/or other prizes!

Also, in case you missed it, we just released a brand spankin' new video "Celebrity Intervention," where "Dave" finds out his TRUE identity. WATCH IT NOW!!!

See you real soon!

HELLO OUT THERE!! It's a crazy time here at Think Tank HQ so let's jump right in. First and foremost, we are very excited to announce that our new video, "Celebrity Intervention," WILL DROP ON OUR YOUTUBE PAGE NEXT TUESDAY, MAY 7TH!!!! We can't wait to finally unveil this to the public. Our esteemed colleague, Greg Wenz, saw it in a private viewing and called it, "Brilliant! It's like a short film!" So yeah, we packed a lot into under 4 minutes. In the meantime, we just released a little teaser, "Shh...It's Bedtime," featuring the extras who helped us out. A big thanks to AlChad, John, Susan, Katie, Ashby, Jaymee, and Tiny for helping us out. We are also elbow deep in editing 3 other projects, so be on the lookout for a lot of new material!

We are also excited to announce that we have booked our first run of live shows since Chicago Sketchfest!! We will be performing an all new revue Sundays in June at the DEN THEATRE, at 1333 N. Milwaukee. This is our debut in Wicker Park, and the shows will be at 7:30 on Sundays June 2-23.

New Sick Day Promo Video Featuring the Fashion Police

Hello out there! We've been hiding in our secret lair, producing, filming, and editing a ton of new video content that we will be unveiling in the coming weeks. As we've mentioned, we also recently worked on a pilot project at Odd Machine with our pals at Lakewood Manor Players called Sick Day. A lot of clips from the shoot have been surfacing online, and one of the clips featuring Think Tank characters, the Fashion Police, just surfaced online. It's now available below for your viewing pleasure! This is a rough edit, and needs some polishing, but we were so gosh darned excited, we just had to share it with you anyway. Our new video "You're Robert Deniro" has been sent to our sound people and is almost done, AND we are filming again next week, SO STAY TUNED FOR A LOT MORE!!

See you soon!

Happy New Year! We hope you had a wonderful holiday season without gaining 20lbs (like we did) and that your New Year's Resolutions are going splendidly! A new year means one thing in Tank Town: IT'S TIME FOR CHICAGO SKETCHFEST!!! We are honored to have another coveted Saturday slot at this year's festival. Our show is this Saturday, January 12th at 6pm and TICKETS ARE AVAILABLE RIGHT HERE RIGHT NOW (just scroll down to Jan. 12th, find the Think Tank hyperlink, and CLICK). As always, we are going to pull out all the stops for our 6th (!!!) consecutive year performing performing the fest (we think 6 may be a World Record...we're still waiting for confirmation).  

Now, you may be saying to yourself, "6pm seems mighty early for the Think Tank boys to be starting a show," and you might be correct. However, this is much more than just a show. We are building out an entire evening of silly times afterwards. We'll start with the show at 6pm sharp, then the Trader Todd's bus will pick up our fans and bring them a few blocks east (it's also easily walkable, if that's one of your resolutions) to the bar for $3 drafts, shot specials, and appetizers courtesy of Think Tank. We'll carry that party into the night and see where it takes us, probably breaking many of our own resolutions in the process.

In other exciting news, our entire 24 minute pilot television episode of Misguided TV will be live online for your viewing pleasure at our Vimeo page RIGHT HERE Saturday evening. Right now, that link won't take you anywhere fancy, but we will make it live right after the Sketchfest show Saturday night!!

Stay tuned for more big news from Think Tank. A lot of big shows and big ideas in the works for the year. 

2013: The Year of the Tank.

Here's a fun little holiday video we shot. Enjoy!
