One of Chicago's best kept secrets is one of the most inspirational tales of entrepreneurialism the Windy City has to offer.

Being a filmmaker/screenwriter and having seen countless films, I've often been asked by my peers what criteria I judge by when giving a film a favorable review. Showing little restraint with vocal illustration, I've often preached calculating the essentiality of whether or not the story of the film was one that needed to be told; "PHUNNY BUSINESS" excels in that capacity. Throw in skillful editing, poignant direction, and affix premium comedy provided by a steady flow of cameo flashes from an ensemble of A-list comedians and now you have a masterpiece.

I've lived the greater part of my life in Chicago and its outlining suburbs, never knowing the existence of the "ALL JOKES ASIDE" comedy club; and I thought I knew the City well.
