Milwaukee’s Bunny Gumbo Combat Theatre is presenting a show of quick-baked original comedy sketches on Friday, Nov. 30, and Saturday, Dec. 1.
Taking advantage of seasonal goodwill, Bunny Gumbo is calling the show “Combat for the Holidays.”
From Facebook: “30 actors, 8 writers and 8 directors bring you 16 new works of theatre all created in 24 hours. The subjects and locations for these new plays are all, literally, pulled from a hat. The scripts are written overnight and the casts have less than 12 hours to memorize their lines and get the shows up on their feet. After Friday’s show, we do it all over again…with less time! There is no advanced preparation, no warning, no mercy – just instinct, ability and raw talent on display. The outcome of the process is a wide variety of 15-minute works that boggle the imagination.”
The showtime both nights is 8 p.m. And the place is the Milwaukee Youth Arts Center, 325 W. Walnut St. Admission is $18.
It’s that time of the month, and Erik Koconis is gathering a group of funny folk for the Comedy Conclave.
That’s where practitioners and aficionados of comedy chat about what makes people laugh. Much of their insight is based on first-hand knowledge of laughing.
It’s informal, informative and free.
It starts at 6 p.m., Sunday, Nov. 25, at Rounding Third Sports Bar, 6317 W. Bluemound Road. And it’s directly followed by a free open mic session with many of the discussion participants practicing what they preach.
The grandes dames of Milwaukee sketch are at it again with their first performance since the Milwaukee Comedy Festival in August.
It’s appropriate for audiences 15 and older.
