We are Handsome Naked
Handsome Naked is an award winning, critically acclaimed comedy hip-hop group from Chicago who made their TV debut on NBC’s Bring the Funny. In the process of creating 7 albums (#HandsomeNaked, Google Us, Chicago Style, H.NAKE, Fully Clothed, Blankets, Doors ) and over 30 music videos, they have collaborated with elite comedic and musical talent such as Chris Redd (SNL, Netflix, Comedy Central), Rashawn Nadine Scott (Comedy Central, The Late Show), Calvin Evans (NBC, Showtime) Kosha Dillz and more. The groups’ most recent album, “Doors” debuted at #2 on the iTunes comedy charts and was top 10 on Billboard Comedy. Handsome Naked began when NYU graduate filmmaker and comedian Eric Oren (national touring stand-up, TruTV's "Roadspill"), actor and comedian Chucho Pérez (NBC’s Chicago MED, Wait, Wait Don’t Tell Me) and producer and composer Brad Kemp (Second City Music Director and Teacher, Head engineer/owner Second Bedroom Studio) joined forces to create lyrical rap from their unique comedic perspective. Whether headlining comedy festivals, performing at colleges or opening for renowned acts like Shane Torres, Flynt Flossy or Planet Booty, they’ve been seen regularly at Chicago staples such as Zanies, Subterranean, The Beat Kitchen, The Second City, Green Mill and more.
