This Tuesday, the TBS Just For Laughs Chicago festival begins, offering just less than a week of knee-slappin' comedy showcases featuring talent ranging from Hollywood A-Listers to local up-and-comers.

The festivities actually get underway Monday with the first taping of the first of four Conan O'Brien episodes at the Chicago Theatre downtown. Guests will include Andy Samberg, Adam Sandler, Johnny Galecki and Jack McBrayer. While the (free!) ticket lottery has already come and gone, standby tickets are still available.

Meanwhile, funny guys and gals including Sarah Silverman, Aziz Ansari, Marc Maron, Amy Schumer, T. J. Miller and more will be taking over the city with a barrage of showcases throughout the city through Sunday evening.

We picked out some of our most anticipated showcases below -- what did we miss?
