‘Chicago Party Aunt' Co-Creator to Discuss Netflix Show at City Comic Expo Next Weekend

NBC Universal, Inc.

Co-creater of "Chicago Party Aunt" Chris Witaske is returning to the Windy City next weekend to discuss his popular Chicago-based Netflix show.

Witaske, Illinoisan and a long-time veteran of Chicago comedy, said in a Twitter post that he will be at the Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo on Dec. 11 to "talk all things Chicago Party Aunt."

The adult animated series on Netflix, which aired its first eight episodes on Sept. 17, is based entirely off of a popular and provocative Twitter account.

"Saturday Night Live" writer Katie Rich and "Superstore" actor Jon Barinholtz, both of whom have strong ties to the Chicago comedy scene, are both involved in the production of the show.

"Superstore" star and Second City alumna Lauren Ash announced on social media that she will voice the main character of "Chicago Party Aunt," whose Twitter bio reads "If life gives you lemons, turn that [expletive] into Mike's Hard Lemonade."
