  • Jen Bosworth @ Uncommon Ground!

    You're Being Ridiculous is super excited to be back at Uncommon Ground, Edgewater with a fun fall show for you! AND ... we're delighted to welcome Jen Bosworth to YBR to share a story with us ... learn a little about Jen here and get your tickets!


    Jen Bosworth is a writer and actor from Evanston. Her solo show... WHY NOT ME, which she wrote and performed, enjoyed two successful runs here in Chicago and was named the 'breakout hit' of the NYC International Fringe Festival. Jen currently spends her days trying to finish her son of a biscuit screenplay, auditioning for television/film and watching reruns of Crime Watch Daily with Chris Hansen on Youtube. She lives in Rogers Park with her skateboarding lawyer husband and her imaginary French bulldog named Boots.

    What are you thankful for this year??

    1. Rage-rage means I care. When I care I do things I am proud of. And when I am proud I feel like my dead parents are proud. And even in their deaths I would like to make them proud. Because I love them. And they loved me.

    2. Levity-I refuse to despair 100% of the time. This is what oppressors want us to feel. 100% of the time. I will laugh and make jokes. I must. And I will revel in other humans who strive to connect with humanity through humor and perhaps a broader perspective.

    3. Lip balm-I will kill someone if my lips stay chapped for too long. Just facts.
