Myke Wilson 2

Since the age of 4, Myke Wilson has always known he was destined to entertain the world through stand-up comedy. In 8th grade during his “What I Want To Be When I Grow Up” speech, he told the class he wanted to be a stand-up comic; the whole class laughed. He thought to himself, “Damn, am I really that good?” Little did he know they were laughing at him, not with him. Regardless, Myke will welcome any kind of laughter, even if it’s meant for him in a mean, condescending way.

VERY IMPORTANT UPDATE – PORTAGE THEATER CLOSE – NEW VENUE TO BE ANNOUNCED!

VERY IMPORTANT UPDATE FROM SPOOK SHOW ENTERTAINMENT INC.

THE PORTAGE THEATER CLOSED

SSE Logo copyAs many of you have probably read (Click Here To See Article from DNAInfo.com Chicago), for reasons beyond our control or involvement, The Portage Theater has closed its doors effective Friday May 24th 2013.  Spook Show Entertainment Inc. were contacted by phone to be made aware of this just after the midnight hour on Saturday May 25th.  Since receiving the news, SSE Festival Producers have been put on notice and some working around the clock to find new venue for the upcoming Laugh or Die Comedy Festival as well as The Chicago Horror Film Festival & The Spook Show Con. As of 3AM May 25th, SSE Inc. does have at least one possible venue available for the Laugh or Die Comedy Festival on the same dates as the original programming schedule.  This new venue is not confirmed just yet, but they hope to have confirmation by 5pm CST May 25th.  At that time SSE will be making contact with all stage and screen talents involved in the festival and then making public post announcing the new venue. In regards to the 2013 Chicago Horror Film Festival & The Spook Show Con events, SSE executives have various meetings established in and around Chicago & the Northern Illinois Region on the morning of Saturday May 25th in hopes of securing a new venue for some of the largest events on SSE's annual calendar. SSE President Willy Adkins is expected to make a statement about the closing of The Portage Theater via press release sometime early this coming week.  The only comment offered at this late hour was, "It is a truly sad situation that brings hurt to both myself and my company greatly.  But at this time, we have to concentrate on finding new venue rather then our personal feelings". SSE has received over 300 emails since the closing of the venue, and asks that everyone be patient as they work to reply to them all.  For booked talent and filmmakers, you will be contacted the moment a venue is secured. Thank you all for your understanding during this time.  SSE wishes to apologize for any complications the closing of the Portage Theater might cause.  But as they say, "The show must go on".
