Support The Chicago Genius

When you support The Chicago Genius, you're supporting a democratically-run comedy and artist collective of Chicagoans and people who consider themselves “spiritually Chicagoan” (think ketchup is lame). Whether you support by sharing our articles, pitching us headlines (please no more about the traffic on I90. We get it, it’s bad), or just laughing at what you see on our site, you’re helping keep our operation afloat and our egos well-inflated.


But, the easiest way to support us is to become a member of Coil. We’ve joined with sites like The Hard Times, Reductress, and Spooky Mag as part of a comedy bundle that lets you pay just $5/month and automatically divides that up between the websites you visit that have Coil installed. Sign up for Coil below and we thank you in advance for using your hard-earned dollars to support local comedy!

Tip Jar

Coil too much of a commitment? Tip us on Ko-Fi. It's easy AND, we cannot stress this enough, FUN!

We'll have more ways to support coming soon, but for now sign up for our monthly newsletter, which everyone says is very good and also not bad at all!
