As Laugh Factory owner Jamie Masada notes, one of the most famous funnymen of all time started out as a local weather forecaster in Indiana: David Letterman. Come June 11 at 6:30 p.m., Masada's local outpost on N. Broadway will host a slew of other comedic media types from radio, television, print and web. An official list of participants isn't yet available, but it's a good bet you'll recognize at least some of the names. Their mutual goal: to make you laugh in five minutes or less with jokes, songs, poems -- whatever.

"This is a great opportunity for the people of Chicago to see their favorite media stars in a new light," Masada said.

Whether or not that light is flattering remains to be seen. But you won't know if you don't go.

And since the winner gets a check for his or her favorite charity, rest assured your $15 entry fee (which also includes a VIP cocktail hour) is money well spent. Unless maybe the favorite charity is one of these.

Anyway, here are all the details.

Chicago's Funniest Media Personality
Tuesday, June 11 at 6:30 p.m. (doors open at 6)
The Laugh Factory
3175 N. Broadway (corner of Broadway and Belmont)
Tickets $15 (includes VIP cocktail hour; two-beverage minimum once inside)
