Water Street Studios Live Art Series Presents: The Art of Comedy

The Live Art Series is a monthly live art performance exploring a variety of art forms including music, film, dance, storytelling, and more!

The Live Art Series event is hosted in the Dempsey Family Gallery at Water Street Studios. The Live Art Series is made possible by a grant from the Batavia Arts Council. 

Note: All ticket sales go to support the continuation of arts programming at Water Street Studios, a nonprofit art center located in Batavia, IL.

Join us for an evening of stand-up comedy presented by comedian and former Water Street Studios resident artist Darius Hurley, who has been performing comedy in the Chicago area for the past 4 years.


Stand up comedy remains one of the more challenging of art forms combining inspiration, writing, rewriting, practice, and performance.  It requires courage, patience and, occasionally, a thick skin.  This evenings' event will feature 6 of the areas best established and up and coming comedy acts for an evening of fun and laughter.  Stick around for a very informal Q&A afterwards.

Recommended for ages 17 and up

Comedy Artists: Stuart Swanson, Katie Meiners, Scott Galvin, KB Marion, Timmy Blaze, and Darius Hurley.
