“Love Isn’t Blind”

Thursday July 18, 2024 at 7:15 p.m.

Tickets: $23 - $45

Tired of swiping? In this dating experiment, men compete on stage for one lucky bachelorette, with the little caveat that the men can't speak. Through a series of games - which includes calling the boys' moms and unlocking their phones - we narrow it down to two men. Finally, we hear their voices, and the lucky winning man is sent with our bachelorette to the bar for an immediate date. Audience members wear wristbands according to their relationship status, and a wingcouple (who wear actual wings) helps those of you who are too shy to make a move. Created, produced, and hosted by Allison Goldberg.

Allison Goldberg is a comedian and creator whose work has been covered by LA Magazine, Good Morning America, The Savage Lovecast, WIRED, NPR, The LA Times, and more. Most recently, she sold her live comedy show How To Break Up By Text to Audible (released in Feb 2024 - go listen!). In that show and format, celebrities perform your break-up texts and then an expert joins as we break down your break up. Guests for season 1 included Bobby Moynihan, Margaret Cho, Iliza Shlesinger, and many others. For the past year, she's been hosting her newest creation, Love Isn't Blind, which is a comedy/dating show where the men can't speak. So far, it's been covered by NBC's California Live, LA Magazine, Time Out LA, Thrillist, on CBS, and more. Learn more about Alli and her various projects at

In addition, the first floor houses The Den Bar & Lounge – a full-service bar where audiences gather before and after performances to share a drink and commune with like-minded culture-hounds. Today, The Den is focused on providing world-class stand-up comedy and cultivating its first love – the theatre. The Den is home to four resident theatre companies including About Face Theatre, The Artistic Home, First Floor Theater and Haven. Hundreds of other companies, artists and comedians from Chicago and beyond have called The Den home – from national names to local stars, and The Den consistently plays host to a lineup of exciting and diverse talent.
