Benjamin Franklin's Birthday. (1706.01.17-1790.04.17). Yearly.
Day to remember the great early American scientist, thinker and statesman. Franklin is remembered for his Poor Richard's Almanac, the discovery of the electrical nature of lightning leading to the invention of the lightning rod, and for his political activities in pre and post-revolutionary America. Born in Boston MA, one of thirteen children of a puritan family, died in Philadelphia. Because Franklin recommended thrift, some schools start a Thrift Week on his birthday.

Sketch Comedy Fest (since 2002). -2018.01.21 Yearly. Several shows daily.
Nation's Largest, over 100 performances featuring local, national, Canadian sketch comedy troupes on four stages. "Sketch comedy is as Chicago as deep-dish pizza and the Sears Tower. Unlike its cousin improvisation, sketch comedy is scripted. Strong writing is a vital element of the art form, which usually consists of short, satirical and funny vignettes. Although elements of improvisation are often used in creating sketches, the resulting performance is scripted, rather than made up on the spot."
