It's been over a decade since TENACIOUS D first rocked speakers with their phenomenal debut album, and in that time the duo of Jack Black and Kyle Gass have witnessed their comedic musical offspring take a career path much like the bands they've been known to parody. The epic first album followed by a sophomore slump, the backlash, years of inactivity, and finally the inevitable rise from the ashes. It would be pretty funny if this was actually all by design. Ha Ha - the joke's on you, rock critics and music industry!

His June 11-14th stay in the Windy City coincides with the TBS Just For Laughs Comedy Festival, which will be in town from June 12-17, 2012.
