Jim Belushi and the Chicago Board of Comedy
Lied Performing Arts Center, 301 N 12th St, Lincoln, 7:30 p.m., $25-45, liedcenter.org
An alumnus of Saturday Night Live and Chicago’s famed Second City, Jim Belushi lands in Lincoln Friday night with his improvised comedy sketch show featuring Chicago Board of Comedy members Larry Joe Campbell, Jon Barinholtz and Brad Morris. Brother to comedic genius, John Belushi, Jim Belushi followed in his older brother’s footsteps, which led him to a very successful career in television and film. In fact, he’s appeared in nearly 100 films over the course of nearly four decades. Belushi also joined the Blues Brothers with fellow actor Dan Aykroyd in 1988, six years after original member, his brother John, passed away. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to see a Belushi brother in person.
