SERENITY NOW is a comedy show featuring performers who are in recovery from substance abuse and other forms of addiction. The substance-free show is held every third Saturday* of the month at The Crowd Theater (3935 N. Broadway) in Chicago.

Since its first show in October of 2018, SERENITY NOW has featured over 50 sober performers. The anniversary show on October 19 will feature returning favorite, Mark James Heath. Full lineup and more details coming soon.


Out of respect for performers, please no drugs/alcohol (including vaping) in the theater. While there is no age restriction, this show features adult content. SERENITY NOW is on the second floor of The Crowd Theater, up one tall flight of stairs.  For more about The Crowd, go here.


*Please note, the November show will be on November 9 at 8 p.m. We are taking December off for the holidays and will return in January.
