About the comedians

Jim Flannigan is a Chicago native and favorite who has been seen on ABC, WGN and WCIU, a news release stated. In the last year, Flannigan was invited to perform at some of the most prestigious comedy festivals in the country, including the Boston Comedy Festival, Gilda’s LaughFest and The Great American Comedy Festival, honoring the late Johnny Carson. He also co-hosts the official Chicago White Sox Podcast, "The Cycle," available on and iTunes.

Jeanie Dooganstarted her career at the tender age of 5 when she quickly learned that as the youngest of eight children she needed a hook if she ever wanted to be fed, bathed, or have her existence acknowledged in any way. Failing miserably at tap dancing, Irish dancing, gymnastics and academics, she carved out her comedy niche with knock-knock jokes and soon rose to fame at the family dinner table with such classics as: “Knock-knock.” “Knock-knock.” “Knock-knock! Open the door! You left me outside again!”

Since her kitchen table debut, Doogan has entertained audiences at colleges, casinos, and corporate events, and is a regular at venues such as Zanies Comedy Clubs, The Laugh Factory, and The Comedy Bar. She was highlighted in Chicago Parents’ Magazine’s Four of Chicago’s Funniest: Stand Up Parents, and was featured on Nick Jr.’s "Moms’ Night Out" debut stand-up special.

She has set herself apart with her quick observations and no-apology take on teaching, parenthood, and American culture. Her sharp wit draws on her experiences growing up on the Southside of Chicago and 15 years as a public school teacher to deliver comedy that reaches audiences of all ages, genders, and walks of life.

There is social distancing for seating, and performances are capped at 50 people. Patrons can buy up to four tickets per live ticket order.

Raue Center for the Arts, at 26 N. Williams St., will spread the audience out to maintain social distance and will strictly follow other safety protocols. Masks will be required when entering the space and throughout one's stay.
