The Great Impersonator

Chicago is to comedians as Kenya is to marathon runners. The place just churns them out. John Caponera cut his comedic teeth in the Windy City before he started getting gigs at clubs around the country. He’s a regular in Cleveland, where he performs every few months. He also stars in his own sitcom, The Good Guy, and he loves to impersonate former Chicago Cubs announcer Harry Caray. Even though he doesn’t sound exactly like the late Caray, he earns the laughs by making fun of the way Caray sounded drunk and often confused about what was going on in the game as he wondered aloud which bar he’d hit after the game. He’s at Hilarities tonight at 8 and has shows scheduled at the club through Sunday. Tickets are $20 to $23. (Niesel)
