The Greatest Show On Earth passes through Chicago tonight, Thursday, March 19th, for a sold out engagement at Lincoln Hall. To mark the occasion, The Chicago Reader dedicated the entire backside of this week’s issue to Tom Scharpling, Jon Wurster, and the consolidate comedy box set monstrosity, The Best Of The Best Show (Numero Group). If you’re just tuning in, this article does a great job of taking you through the last 20 years of Best Show bullet points. For insiders, Scharpling & Wurster pen a Spring Supplement to Rock, Rot, & Rule, acknowledging that the Grateful Dead rule for inventing pot and that our own Syl Johnson rules on the basis that he’s “the most irritable of all the Wu-Tang Clan members.” Unless you already have a ticket (or a time machine) tonight’s Scharpling & Wurster show is SOLD OUT. Fortunately, copies of The Best Of The Best Show are shipping to lunatics right now, so feel free to throw your credit card number on the pile.
