Peter-john Byrnes’ newest live album recording will take the stage for two shows,
8 and 10 p.m. on Oct. 19 at CSz Theater Chicago, 929 W. Belmont Ave., Chicago.
Mr. Byrnes writes a poison-pen love letter to Los Angeles, and talks about technology, nostalgia, and getting lost repeatedly and eventually finding a way out.

Evanston resident Mr. Byrnes is the host of the comedy podcast “This Week in
Despair,” which is recorded from his offices in downtown Evanston and which has
been downloaded in all 50 states and, at last count, 40 foreign countries. He produced
the Double-Shot Showcase here in 2012 and 2013 and has produced and performed
in shows at Bistro Bordeaux.

Tickets and information are available at 773-549-8080, CSZChicago.com.
