Chicago native Rebecca O'Neal has a background in humor writing -- she's currently an editor for comedy website Splitsider -- but last February, she started performing stand-up. In a matter of months, she's gained attention not often given to new comics.

O'Neal is also the host of a new monthly comedy show, "Congrats on Your Success," at Logan Square's Uncharted Books.
