Oh, the humility!

Comedy is serious stuff to those who practice it. Each month, Erik Koconis - Milwaukee standup, actor and guru - orchestrates entertaining discussions about the art of humor at a gathering called the Comedy Conclave.

The conclave is a free forum on the last Sunday of the month prior to the longstanding Sunday evening open mic at Rounding Third Bar & Grill, 6317 W. Bluemound Road. The next Comedy Conclave starts at 6 p.m., Sunday, Aug. 26.

From Erik via Facebook, This month’s topics: Reflections on EGO and Humility and their dual roles in comedy. Get ready. This could get real.”

Both the conclave and the open mic are free. There’s even a tradition of door prizes.

For more information, check out the Comedy Conclave website for audio recordings of previous discussions and even a comedy glossary. And here’s more background on the conclave from Christy Watson.
