MISTER DIPLOMAT has been making audiences laugh since 2003. From local crowds at Inside Scoop, Skylight Exchange, Kings Barcade, The ArtsCenter, and now its home at DSI Comedy Theater, to prominent venues such as the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre (New York City) and The Playground (Chicago), Diplomat has cemented itself as a national comedy juggernaut. Catch it every Friday at 10pm!

"The combination of personal history and off-the-wall comedy makes for entertainment that is easily more engrossing than any movie or television show. By the end, the performers had me in tears." —IW
