It’s Marathon Weekend in Chicago as Skinny and Houli celebrate their final Friday taping at Lizzie McNeill’s. All the excitement of the Marathon and the Notre Dame game on Saturday at Soldier Field has permeated Lizzie’s as the lads hold court in a heated tent to kick off the festivities with The Chancey Brothers Irish Band. Chicago comic Alex Joyce stops by once again to keep us up to date on his career and Skinny tells stories of the brain surgeons’ convention at McCormick Place. Chancey Bros. perform Wild Colonial Boy and Johnny I Hardly Knew Ye and the idea for a Skinny & Houli tour to Ireland is born! Chicago Police Captain Dan Corboy RIP is featured in our “Who Died?” segment and the usual hilarity ensues for “Who Cares?” Next week Skinny & Houli begin “Wednesday Wiggle” at Lizzie’s every Wed. night from 6-7PM. Please join us for the fun. Next Wed our guest is international Irish tenor Paddy Homan. Don’t miss it! Come on down to Lizzie’s to see him live!
