Gary native, actor and comedian Buddy Lewis has made coming home a regular thing. The Chicago Own’s Comedy Series he has been hosting each month has taken off. On July 2, the comedy line-up will feature seasoned comedy favorites Leon Rodgers, Baldhead Phillips and Brad Sanders aka Tyrone On The Phone at Pure Bar & Grill 20901 Western Ave. in Chicago Heights, IL (Note venue change). Doors open at 7:00 p.m., and show time is 8:00 p.m.
“Chicago has so much talent, so it has been pretty easy to create shows that will draw a crowd and have the people laughing non-stop,” said Lewis, who rolled the first show back in March.
Tickets to the comedy show are $30, and a two drink minimum is required. Parking is free, and early arrival is encouraged. To purchase tickets online click here or via CashApp using the address $Justroland14.

Lake St. Lewis will also make a special appearance at Popcorn World at 2560 Garfield St. in Gary on Friday, July 1 at 3:00 p.m. where the new “Buddy Mix” popcorn flavor will be unveiled.
“Any time that I am home, I love to make public appearances,” added Lewis. “I want everyone to know I have not forgotten about Gary, and that I am proud to be a native.”
