    Thanksgiving is no exception to the Chicago rule of great comedy every single night of the year. Snow, sleet, ice, insufferable temps, holidays and faux holidays. None stand in the way. Comedy, as always, is a refuge and a celebration in its own right. Escape the Thanksgiving table when the conversation turns twitchy.
