"Reena Calm is an East Coast Jew turned Chicago favorite, and one of the most respected and requested comedians in the Midwest," Shift Drinks Comedy said in a press release. "Pulling from a lifetime of questionable choices, Reena’s material is autobiographical, silly, and charmingly inappropriate. She travels the country on her signature #CalmedyTours, and has performed in some of the best rooms in America. Reena has opened for Arsenio Hall, has been on 'Doug Loves Movies,' was named Comic of The Week on The Jackie & Laurie Show and recently published her first book 'Once A Pun A Time: Legend Of A Sighs Queen.'"

Shift Drinks Comedy plans to bring more stand up comedians, including local acts, nationally touring comics and "some of the best up and coming talent in the Midwest," to Northwest Indiana in the future.

Tickets to Friday's show are $10.
