About the Event

Just in time for April Fool’s day, join Leyla Royale on a tour of pranks gone wrong & learn how Chicagoans of yesterday celebrated April 1st

With stories unearthed from Chicago’s newspaper archives, you’ll hear why it’s not a good idea to put a lit firework in someone’s back pocket and just how deadly it can be to surprise your coworker with compressed air.

We’ll also take a look back at how Chicagoans back in the day celebrated April Fool’s (and other holidays) with some more lighthearted jokes, without the mortal consequences.


This event is FREE with donations suggested/welcome.

The talk will be broadcast on Facebook Live via Effing Chicago.
