There are a handful of TV shows from the ’90s I remember watching with my family, us all cackling in unison certain nights of the week: Friends, Full House and Whose Line Is It Anyway?

Well get ready to laugh so hard that maybe beer – instead of chocolate milk – squirts out your nose this week at Chicago Improv Fest. Shows run today through Sunday at comedy clubs throughout the city, and include headliners Lucas Neff of Raising Hope fame and Rob Belushi.

Venues range from the expected Second City in Old Town to Bucktown’s Gorilla Tango Theatre. Ticket prices start at free (with donations accepted) to $25. (I highly recommend securing tickets now for the The Improvised Shakespeare Company show April 7 at UP Comedy Club.) Click here for a full list of shows, venues and genres.

Which TV shows do you remember laughing at with your family? Tell us in the comments below.
