      Erik Childress Movie Madness Podcast The film could have just been another collection of quips from working stand-up comics, but it digs further into the social and racial dynamics of the city of Chicago and how negotiating that is just as important as the jokes. Rated: 3/4 Jun 13, 2023 Full Review Linda Cook OurQuadCities / WHBF-TV (Illinois) It's a seriously funny look at the history of Chicago standup comedy. Rated: 3 stars May 15, 2023 Full Review Richard von Busack SF Weekly Out of the Loop is one of those documentaries that seem like a podcast carried out by other means, with talking heads interspersed with glorious looking drone footage of Chicago. But there’s a wealth of cultural history here, intelligently collected May 1, 2023 Full Review Steven Prokopy Third Coast Review It’s a frequently thankless, competitive, brutal occupation, but when a performer clicks with an audience, it’s also addictive. And Out of the Loop captures the entirety of that experience quite beautifully. Rated: 3/4 Apr 18, 2023 Full Review Nathaniel Muir AIPT A funny and surprisingly insightful look at Chicago comedy. It highlights how there is more to Chicago than The Second City improv group. That being said, as good as it is, the film is strictly for fans of stand up comedy. Apr 18, 2023 Full Review Patrick McDonald HollywoodChicago.com I loved the Chicago stand up era described in this film, so called me biased, big deal. There is a nice twist in this talking head doc, different than I thought it would be, but very necessary in any look at Chicago history. Star Packed & City Gritty!
