Stephen Rannazzisi will headline an evening of entertainment at the Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo (C2E2) on Saturday, April 14 in the IGN Theater at McCormick Place. Rannazzisi, who got his first taste of television success for his role on MTV’s Punk’d, is more recently recognized for his part as “Kevin”, the League Commissioner on FX’s hit show The League, a semi-improvised comedy which is set in Chicago about the members of a fantasy football league and their everyday lives. Mr. Rannazzisi’s show at C2E2 is part of his You’re Either In or You’re Out tour which has been selling out venues across the country. He will perform free for all C2E2 Weekend, Saturday or VIP badge-holders.
