It’s only a week until the biggest comedy event in the state, the Milwaukee Comedy Festival. But there are plenty of laughs to be found in town before then.  Take Friday, July 27th, for example: if you play your cards right, you can fit these three shows into one hilarious night!

The Caffeinated Comedy Hour


It’s a comedy show you will be sure to like a “latte”. The last Friday of every month at the Sherman Perk Coffee shop 4924 W Roosevelt Drive. If you’ve never seen comedy performed in a gas station turned coffee shop, now’s your chance. $3 admission and a raffle for cool stuff at the end. And it’s BYOB if you want to have a few cold ones.  Featuring Ryan Lowe and “The Original” Darryl Hill. Hosted by Shawn Shellnut!

Homegrown Electric Circus
With Special Guest Robby McGhee!

Call them opportunists or marketing geniuses, but the folks at Homegrown know how to create funny stories from thin air. Having Robby on stage with them certainly won’t hurt their show. We’re not sure how much admission is. It’s usually $5 at the door. Maybe they’ll try charging extra to cash in on Robby. At ComedySportz, 420 S. 1st St., Milwaukee


Crappy Dracula will be playing at 9pm at the Riverwest Public House, 815 E Locust St., Milwaukee in celebration of Riverwest 24. You get 2 sets of Crappy Dracula sandwiched around the Mysterious Suggest-Tron Improv! Who doesn’t like Oreo based comedy?
