CHICAGO — This year's TBS Just For Laughs Chicago festival lineup in June is packed with some familiar faces, including Arrested Development's favorite "never nude" David Cross, Saturday Night Live legend Seth Meyers and HBO pundit Bill Maher.
The actors and comedians will perform for the festival's fifth year at the Chicago Theatre, The Vic and Park West from June 11-16. Tickets go on sale Saturday at 10 a.m. and range from about $25 to $75 per show.
The next night, just less than a month after "Arrested Development" will make its much-hyped return via Netflix, David Cross will headline at the Chicago Theatre.
Saturday Night Live's Seth Meyers will perform at the Chicago Theatre along with Daily Show guest Al Madrigal and "30 Rock" writer Hannibal Buress.
Also performing on June 14 is the U.K.'s Dylan Moran, known for the British TV show "Black Books" and the zombie comedy "Shaun of the Dead."
On June 16, HBO political pundit Maher, the creator of the 2008 documentary "Religulous", will be at the Chicago Theatre.
Tickets may be purchased for the Chicago Theatre online at ticketmaster.com, by phone at 312-902-1500 or 800-745-3000 or in person at The Chicago Theatre Box Office and Ticketmaster outlets.
