They have also been named the best, or one of the best comedians in Chicago by The Chicago Reader, Chicago Comedy Awards, Timeout Chicago and more.Flannery has a successful one man show, "Never Been to Paris", about the last 10 times he nearly killed himself by accident and created the popular "Blackout Diaries", where people tell real drinking stories and then the audience can ask questions. Both shows will be featured in this years TBS Just For Laughs Festival in Chicago. He was also voted best standup comedian in Chicago by The Chicago Reader. Sullivan is a former winner of the Comic's Choice award in Chicago, where other comedians vote on who they consider to be the best standup in the city. His jokes have been heard on Sirius / XM Radio and, along with Flannery, he can be seen on the forthcoming Comedy Central Show, "Mashup". Later this summer, they will be debuting a two-person comedy show called "Google Killed The Buzz", an interactive, multiemdia comedy show on how smart phones and technology have ruined socializing, drinking and the lost art of running your mouth at a bar. They will be debuting parts of this show in Willmette this July. Also Featuring Mike & Duane! The Mike & Duane Show starring Chicago Underground Comedy cast membersMike Ferbrache and Duane Freeman, is a mix of comedic mini-rock operas, high energy theater, original acoustic rock comedy songs, and alternative standup comedy.

The Mike and Duane Show has performed in bars and clubs throughout the Chicago area and across the USA, and have won the Audience Prize in the Bass Red Triangle Comedy Tour.
