Born and raised in the flannel-clad state of Maine, Lucas O’Neil finds himself at home amidst the plaid shirts of Chicago 20-somethings. A stand-up comic with dramatic theater training, he takes jokes very seriously. Playful, quick-witted and optimistically pessimistic, Lucas has performed in venues and festivals all across the country — including Laughing Skull, Limestone and the prestigious Bridgetown Comedy Festival. He’s also had the privilege to open for some of the best comics in the country including Matt Braunger and Nick Thune.

Sometimes, he worries that he’s a cat person.
