Cincinnati native Mike Cronin blows in from the Windy City to headline a run of shows at Go Bananas this weekend.

He’s lived in Chicago for the past few years and when he’s not on the road headlining a club or featuring for the likes of Tom Segura, he runs a comedy night at a bar across from Wrigley Field.

“I’m gearing up to record a second album,” he says. It will be a follow up to his 2015 debut Hot for Too Long. “It will have more family stuff and a lot of relationship stuff, as well as some traveling and living in Chicago bits. And farts, as always.”

Indeed, family is a constant source of material for Cronin.

“My mom is the exact opposite of my dad — she’s very tech-savvy, almost to an inappropriate degree,” he tells an audience. “She’s told me two of my grandparents have died through text messages, which is so inappropriate. Why don’t you just tweet it to me at that point mom?”

8 p.m. Thursday (May 23); 7:30 and 10 p.m. Friday (May 24) and Saturday (May 25); 8 p.m. Sunday (May 26). $8-$14. Go Bananas, 8410 Market Place Lane, Montgomery, gobananascomedy.com.
