Hello! Richard Johnson here, author of Dead Drunk: Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse… One Beer at a Time. My novel follows the escapades of a motley crew trapped in a Chicago apartment during the zombie apocalypse. Recovering from a raucous bachelor party, the old fraternity buddies now must battle against the cannibalistic horde, a military invasion and their own rampant stupidity. With supplies, common sense and brain cells dwindling by the hour, their chances look slim. The story mostly plays out in a Bucktown apartment that closely resembles one I lived in several years ago near the corner of Armitage and Damen. I loved the neighborhood and felt that it was the perfect setting for a zombie outbreak. If you’re interested in rowdy humor and a little old-fashioned zombie-bashing violence playing out across the Windy City, crack a beer, pull up a barstool, and prepare for one wild ride.
I’ve provided ChicagoZombie.com with a few copies of my book to give away to you lucky readers – email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject header “I WANNA GET DEAD DRUNK!” for your chance to win a copy. Winners will be chosen at random and notified by email.1 Comment Go to Post...

Although the House of Blues confirmed June 7th for the 2013 Chicago Zombie Prom (and gave us the go-ahead to announce it), it turns out they double-booked the date and, since the error came to light, House of Blues has been unable to confirm an alternative date. While we would love to have zombied up the HoB (and we may still, in the future), Zombie Army Productions must soldier on like any good Army.
We’re hard at work finding an alternate location for the 2013 Chicago Zombie Prom. We apologize for the inconvenience and confusion this may cause – it really was beyond the Zombie Army’s control.
Lauren Cohen, who plays Maggie Green on the hit AMC show The Walking Dead, will be at the Harper College Performing Arts Center for a Q&A on Tuesday, April 23rd @ 7:00 pm.

The pH Comedy Theater presents the sixth annual Chicago Zombie Pub Crawl on Saturday, April 20 from 2:30 – 9 p.m. The hugely popular event once again takes place in Chicago’s Andersonville neighborhood. Once the zombies are registered at The pH Comedy Theater (1515 W. Berwyn), the pub crawl begins with pH Productions sending groups of zombies up and down Clark Street, much to the delight and horror of unsuspecting people. Zombie hordes will be led on multiple routes to the many participating bars and enjoy specially priced cocktails and themed drinks.
Early registration began Friday, March 1 and costs $20. This will be available only via the pH Productions Facebook Page using the “Get Tickets” tab. Advanced registration begins Wednesday, March 20 with $25 tickets and will be available at www.chicagozombiepubcrawl.com. On the day of the crawl, walk up purchases will be $30. Registration includes an event cup, an official Chicago Zombie Pub Crawl T-Shirt, and a free year subscription to Time Out Chicago, the crawl’s media sponsor. The event is an annual fundraiser for pH Productions, the not-for-profit Chicago comedy theater company currently based in its brand new home, The pH Comedy Theater (1515 W. Berwyn Ave).
Since the first Chicago Zombie Pub Crawl (CZPC) in 2008, this event has become one of Chicago’s most highly anticipated spring events. CZPC is based on other successful Zombie Pub Crawls around the United States, specifically Minneapolis. The first CZPC had more than 400 zombies roaming in and out of the most popular bars in Andersonville and grew to about 700 four years later. 2013 promises to resurrect even more zombies as the company is adding more stops on the roster. Regular pub crawl participants like Mary’s Rec Room, Mary’s Attic, Simon’s Tavern, and @mosphere (plus several others) are going to be part of the fun once again this year. There will also be food trucks along the way, as well as other great ways local businesses are pitching in. CZPC will have photo contests with a prize for the winners. For the current list of participating bars (This list will continue to be updated as we near the event) and to get tips on being a zombie in the sixth annual CZPC, visit www.chicagozombiepubcrawl.com.Leave a Comment Go to Post...
The Sixth Annual Chicago Zombie March has been set for June 22, 2013! The rules are very simple: Dress and be made up as a zombie and just shamble and act like one. Zombies will meet at Millennium Park and proceed from there. The last few years they have walked to the museum campus, Daley Plaza, back to Millennium Park, to Buckingham Fountain and if there still any able-bodied zombies left, they’lll head over to the ABC7 news station for the 5:00 pm show. If folks want their makeup done, Colleen Jones and David Lasley are available to take appointments. If you don’t have the time to make an appointment, dont worry! They’ll have a crack team of zombie makeup artists to zombify you up! More details will come as the march gets closer and closer.
If you or someone you know is interested in doing zombie makeup, contact Colleen Jones or David Lasley for more info ( make sure you include a link to some pics).

The Chicago debut of playwright Axel Arth and composer Tyler Welton, THINGS FALL APART: A ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE MUSICAL will perform Saturdays at 7:30pm March 2-30, 2013 at the Gorilla Tango Theatre (1919 N.

After spending the first three years of the zombie apocalypse running for his life, Walt has finally had enough. With his best friend Tom, and Tom’s fiancé Barbara, he decides that it’s time to put his foot down and take back the world from these brain-munching monsters. It starts out great: the first survivor that runs into their fledgling town is the lovely Catherine.
Unfortunately for Walt, the second survivor is her boyfriend, Ben. In addition to feeling a bit too strongly about Catherine for her own good, Ben just can’t see eye to eye with Walt and his city. If the world really has ended, why would you possibly want to spend your last few days playing house? As ideals clash, civilizations rise and romances start to bloom. Meanwhile, the threat of zombies ruining it becomes ever more present. Not to mention the threat of it all being brought down from the inside, too.
What follows is answer to many of life’s greatest questions: Will the good guy get the girl? Can humanity rebuild after it’s been completely destroyed? And, most importantly, who’s going to make it out of the zombie apocalypse alive? Come see the answers to these questions (and more!) in this fun parody romp, THINGS FALL APART: A ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE MUSICAL.
