This weekend I was able to read an essay about #prisonstrike2018 live at The Paper Machete, a "live magazine" show in Chicago. You can read my essay about this under-reported event taking place HERE! Thanks!
Hi there! How are you? Oh, that's good. Yeah, I'm alright. Thank you for asking! Here's some stuff I've been up recently, and some things I'll be up to soon!
1. I was interviewed by Voyage Chicago about cartooning, art in general, and whether or not I'm "thought provoking." Check it out HERE!
2. A couple months back, I was on one of my favorite podcasts, STAND BY YOUR BAND, to discuss my love of RUSH. It's a great show and you can listen to my episode HERE!
3. I'll be doing comedy and playing SMASH BROS 64 at A NEW PLAYER HAS ENTERED THE SHOW, this Sunday (6/24) at Under The Gun Theater. I'll be debating the great Grace Thomas in the name of comedy at ARGUMENTS & GRIEVANCES on 6/30 at At North. And I'll be hosting WE STILL LIKE YOU on 7/7 at The Flat Iron Arts Building.
4. The second ever UPSTAIRS STANDUP at Schubas Tavern is happening this Tuesday! Gonna be a great show and once again we've booked some of our favorites from the Schubas Open Mic!
Along with my open mic co-hosts, Clare and Bobby, we are producing an exciting new standup show at Schubas Tavern, one of the best venues for comedy or music in all of Chicago!
Our first show is Tuesday 5/22, and all shows are on the 4th Tuesday of the month! $5 tickets are online, or you can pay $10 at the door.
Here's the ticket link! http://www.lh-st.com/Shows/05-22-2018+Upstairs+Standup
We're very excited to bring you some of our favorite comics from Chicago and LA, and hope you can make it to this show!
Hey y'all! By the time you read this, I should have an updated calendar, which includes some shows in New York City! You can also see me in Chicago (of course), and St. Louis this summer! (Plus a few others places.)
In the meantime, please listen to the We Still Like You podcast (available on iTunes and Stitcher and Youtube). It's free and funny and will make you squirm with worry and laughter!
Also, I am working on some new pieces to make prints of, and if you'd like a print of something on my DRAWINGS page, email me at email@example.com! And as almost-always, I am currently accepting commissions too!
Here are three new ones:
Hey! Sorry for the lack of updates! I've been a little swamped throughout March, but April and May shows are *mostly* up to date for right now! Though, you can be on the lookout for some New York City shows in May and maybe some Missouri shows as well (if I can pull it off).
For booking, commissions, or inquiries, please contact me at SnodgrassComic@gmail.com.
Thanks and hopefully I'll see you at some shows!

Check out my new informative essay, HOW TO DRAW REPUBLICANS right here: HOW TO DRAW REPUBLICANS BY TYLER SNODGRASS.
It will explain in detail how to best capture the look and essence of our nation's top Republicans for when you decide to cartoon them. Also, it features some of my political cartoons, which you can find on my Facebook page.

Only at Missouri's finest bookstore, Bookmarx, We Still Like You, the storytelling show and podcast will be bringing the shame live and in person. A suggested donation of $5 gets you vulnerable tales and hysterical misadventures, whilst being surrounded by Karl Marx portraits and a ton of books. What could be better? Beer? Yeah, we'll have that too.
On Monday I will be joining the hilarious Cameron Gillette, Carly Ballerini, and Erin Grotheer in Memphis, Springfield Missouri, St. Louis, and Madison for a week of standup and storytelling shows. If you live in any of these cities, come hang out and hear some jokes!
Tomorrow I'll be hosting a great lineup of comedians and storytellers in Chicago with fellow WSLY producer, Shannon Noll. I designed the featured art for this month, and these posters will be available for purchase at the show!
Where: Collaboraction Theater, in the Flatiron Building. Chicago, IL.
When: Doors at 9:30, Show at 10:00pm.
Cost: $5 suggested donation. BYOB.

Hello! This is a post to update you about what's going on with We Still Like You, Chicago's funniest storytelling show. I (Tyler) am one of the creators and producers of the show. We just celebrated our three-year anniversary and our other producers (Dan Sheehan, Danii Gallegos, Shannon Noll, J. Michael Osborne, and Jesse Betend, who also produces the podcast) have tried to make sure that as many people are able to celebrate SHAME as possible. We're doing our best to reach you, and help you reach out in the following ways:
1. We have a PODCAST (and it's really good, no lie), which you can easily find on iTunes and also Youtube. Each episode takes some of the best stories from various live shows from around the country and over the years, and puts them into one thematic piece. Subscribe on iTunes HERE.
2. We have more chapters! For over a year now we've had a wonderful Los Angeles chapter of We Still Like You. And We now also have wonderful chapters of our show in Denver and Louisville. Find out more by visiting the WE STILL LIKE YOU FACEBOOK PAGE HERE.
3. You can submit to be ON We Still Like You through THIS HANDY WEBSITE. We accept and review submissions on a rolling basis and use submissions in every Chicago show we book. If you'd like to get in contact with one of the other WSLY Chapters, or the podcast, email us at WeStillLikeYou@Gmail.com.
Thanks for keeping up with We Still Like You and helping us share empathy and shame even the most scummy scumbags through the power of comedy. More updates to come.
