Team Us Comedy Friends with 401(K) Benefits

The local Chicago comedy trio, Team Us Comedy, will film their first stand up special in a homegrown location while raising funds for a Chicago-based charity.

Titled, Friends With 401(k) Benefits, this special will star three comics with diverse backgrounds, very representative of Chicago.

Team Us Comedy is comprised of Meghana Indurti who was chosen as one of 9 finalists forStandUp NBC in Chicago by NBCUniversal in 2017, Vik Pandya who has opened for Roy Wood Jr. and Michelle Wolf of The Daily Show, and Tyler Fowler, a regular feature and host at Zanies Comedy Club. Indurti, Pandya, and Fowler founded Team Us Comedy in 2015 out of a desire to produce comedy shows that fully represent the hilarious comedy community in Chicago – full of women, people of color, and plenty of differing opinions.

Friends With 401(K) Benefits g From Pandya’s sharp self-deprecation and observational humor on dating to Indurti’s rapid-fire, acerbic one-liners on American culture to Fowler’s hilarious storytelling about growing up Catholic and working in corporate America, there’s something in there for every taste. Here’s a video from Team Us Comedy about the special:
