Onion comedy festival to bring Tracy Morgan, Sarah Silverman

Tracy Morgan

Tracy Morgan and Sarah Silverman will perform at the Civic Opera House in June as part of the third annual 26th Annual Comedy Festival, presented by the Onion and the A.V. Club.

The venerable humor website and its pop-culture sibling have scheduled six days of acts at several venues around Chicago.

Morgan, the “Saturday Night Live” and “30 Rock” alum who has resumed his stand-up career after recovering from a 2014 car accident, will kick off the fest with a show on June 1. Silverman’s June 6 concert will be the festival finale.

Also on the lineup: “Weekend Update” co-anchor Michael Che (June 2, Lincoln Hall), Fusion host Chris Gethard (June 2, Thalia Hall), “Obvious Child” star Jenny Slate with her stand-up trio Big Terrific (June 3, Thalia Hall), “The Daily Show” correspondent Jessica Williams and stage partner Phoebe Robinson (June 3, Lincoln Hall), and Reggie Watts and his “Late Late Show” band Karen (June 4, Thalia Hall)
