Monkey Wrench
Monkey Wrench
Monkey Wrench is a live comedy show featuring stand-up, sketch, and multimedia that's little more than a leftist plot against the ruling class and the worldview they underwrite.
Bernardine Dohrn
Monkey Wrench is proud to present the political radical once hailed by the FBI as “the most dangerous woman in an America,” Bernardine Dohrn! In a live-interview that mixes humor and discussion, we’ll be talking to Bernardine about her path to joining the radical left in the 1960’s, her involvement with revolutionary architectural beautification campaigns of the Weather Underground, and her thoughts on the current resurgence of the political left. We’ll also talk with her about her contemporary work as an advocate for human rights, youth justice and prison abolition. And as always, our show will feature a lineup of performances from some of our favorite comedians in the city.
Arish Singh

Kamau Bell (Totally Biased), and has performed on stand-up showcases like Hot Tub with Kurt Braunohler & Kristen Schaal, Andy Kindler’s Particular Show and Chicago’s Comedians You Should Know. Singh has been featured in various comedy festivals including the Chicago Comedy Exposition ('16), the Bridgetown Comedy Festival ('17), and the Limestone Comedy Festival ('17), and was a semifinalist for the Standup NBC competition ('17).
