Date:  Wednesday, April 28, 2021 - 7:00 p.m. Curtain Call 
Location: Virtual
While Lawyers may rock, Judges often joke, at least with hope to further the efforts of the Illinois Judges Foundation – a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation working to facilitate various benevolent and educational efforts, including those of the Illinois Judges Association. In this first (hopefully annual) adventure into the world of stand-up virtual comedy, the IJF has teamed up with The Second City to bring a program through the virtual chambers of the Illinois judiciary. This program will feature five current or retired judges and talent from The Second City, in a sixty-minute extravaganza designed for those who may want or need a laugh. The cast includes Judges Dan Locallo (ret.), Brian McKillip (ret.), Marty Moltz, Michael Otto, and Joan Smuda (ret.). Those interested in attending must RSVP through Event Bright at by April 27, 2021; thereafter, you will be emailed a link to join the live program at 7 p.m. on April 28, 2021. Considering you get what you pay for, there will be no charge to attend this event, but good-will donations are being requested and sponsorships is available. More information available on the Illinois Judges Foundation website.
