The 97th Annual Bar Show 

Change of Venue: The Bar Show 
Welcome to The Bar Show!
Welcome to the 2020 version of the Chicago Bar Association’s musical comedy revue, “CHANGE OF VENUE: The Bar Show Home Edition”! You will not be surprised to learn that we are going virtual this year. But our creative spirit remains as strong as ever, and we will continue our 96-year-old tradition of trying to make sense, or nonsense, of the year’s events. This year, we’ll be checking in via a series of videos that we’ll conveniently set out below. So please silence your cell phones, pets and any annoying children in the vicinity, and for God’s sakes put on a pair of pants before you start watching. All set? Then press “play”, and enjoy!

We're Still Here for You!

Gee, Chief Justice Roberts


NOTE ABOUT "GEE, CHIEF JUSTICE ROBERTS": We are posting this video in March of 2021. We actually created the video in the summer of 2020, when the balance of ideologies on the Supreme Court was still in doubt. However, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg passed away the week before we planned to launch the video, and the video was then no longer relevant or appropriate to release. Now that several months have passed, we are releasing the video so that you can enjoy the collaborative work of many CBA members and as a tribute to the memory of Justice Ginsburg.
