The pope is giving up his office for Lent. So cardinals will be flocking to Vatican City to elect his successor.
But there’s a more immediate conclave closer to home that’s drawing both the high- and low-minded – and it’s open to the public.
Milwaukee’s Comedy Conclave meets (as it does the last Sunday of every month) at 6 p.m., Sunday, Feb. 24, at Rounding Third Bar & Grill, 6317 W. Bluemound Road.
Founded and led by comedy guru Erik Koconis, the conclave provides an opportunity for practitioners of comedy to discuss varying topics that vex, amaze and amuse them. This month’s topic: “Hackery, what’s the point?”Learn what happens when funny people get together and try to hold serious conversation.
Admission is free, and the conclave is followed by an open mic, giving those same comedians a convenient chance to practice routines or test new bits on their fellow performers.
