Ali Drapos is a stand-up comedian and actor currently based in Chicago. Her big characters and absurdist storytelling have garnered a large following on TikTok.
Initially a theatre actor in NY, Ali performed Shakespeare until a British director kicked her out of rehearsal for making a fart noise with her mouth. Shortly after, she began her career in comedy as a cast member of The Second City’s Touring Company, where she performed improv and sketch around the country.
Ali has taken her stand-up on the road independently and, just last spring headlined the “Best of the Midwest” at the reputable Comedy on State in Madison, WI. She recently opened for the highly lovable Ron Funches at the Den Theatre in Chicago, IL.
Lucia Whalen is a Chicago-born and bred comedian, writer, and concerned citizen. Her clever, feminist perspective paired with a shameless storytelling style makes her a favorite to audiences all over the country. Lucia is passionate about using her background in multimedia journalism and environmental advocacy to increase public awareness of the climate crisis and motivate people to act. Before joining the team at Openlands, Lucia worked as a freelance writer and helped develop Trashy Magazine, a digital zero-waste magazine highlighting sustainability leaders in Chicago.
She has opened for Dave Attell, Janeane Garofalo, Atsuko Okatsuka, Alonzo Bodden, Chad Daniels, and Langston Kerman, among others. She has performed at clubs and venues all over the Midwest, including Steppenwolf, Comedy on State, The Den Theater, The Green Mill, Helium Comedy Club, the Chicago Laugh Factory, and Zanies.
Lucia is a co-producer of the monthly storytelling comedy showcase Ladylike at the Lincoln Lodge in Chicago and hosts at Cole’s Bar in Chicago every Wednesday. She’s been featured at Limestone Comedy Festival, Asheville Comedy Festival, 10,000 Laughs, Flyover Comedy Festival, and more. Lucia has contributed to The New Yorker and is cohost of the environmental history podcast What a Waste.
