In a Black History Month tribute to such legendary African American comics as Richard Pryor, Redd Foxx, Flip Wilson and Chicago's own Bernie Mac, several of their lesser known brethren in yuks will take to the stage Saturday, Feb. 23 for an evening of laughter and remembrance -- and even a few classic bits. Homegrown comic Ronnie Ray will emcee the event, which takes place at the new Chicago Comedy Club in Dolton and is produced by UDC (Underdogs of Comedy) Entertainment.
