The M.U.T.E.S. is a Milwaukee-based comedy troupe that performs live theater as if it’s a silent movie. (See the video below featuring a M.U.T.E.S. performance and interview with cast member Michael Guthrie at the seventh annual Milwaukee Comedy Festival.)
Milwaukee Comedy produces the festival (and this website) to support and promote the Milwaukee comedy community.
See the M.U.T.E.S. at 8 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 8, at the Arcade Theatre, 161 W. Wisconsin Ave. The show includes Retro Comedy Night, which features local talent staging a live performance of an actual episode from a classic TV sitcom.
If that’s not enough, there will be standup comedy from Ryan Holman.
Tickets are $15. (But, hey, it’s a fundraiser. Bigger contributions are welcome.)
