May 12th 2021

Casey Wilson, who played a lovable Chicagoan on the hit show Happy Endings, returns virtually to our city—as herself this time. Wilson reflects on her life and career, which she calls “the wreckage of my presence”—both a summary of the comedian’s young adulthood and the title of her new essay collection. Wilson is currently shooting Apple’s The Shrink Next Door with Will Ferrell, Paul Rudd, and Kathryn Hann. At CHF, she is joined by writer Jessi Klein and actor Andrew Rannells for a humorous and poignant conversation about everything from friendship and motherhood to how to receive visitors in the bath.
