So even with all the comedy at the Underground Collaborative this week (see below), Milwaukee has plenty of other options to grab a laugh.
Among them is the Open Mic Under the Staircase, one of the best open mics for standup comedy in the Milwaukee area. It’s a production of the Caste of Killers Comedy Collective and starts at 8 p.m., Wednesday, April 10, at the Karma Bar & Grill, 600 E. Ogden Ave.Admission is free and there’s no drink minimum, but hey, you’ll be thirsty anyway.
Also, don’t overlook the improv troupe Homegrown Electric Circus, which has a show at 7 p.m. Saturday at ComedySportz, 420 S. 1st St. Homegrown features the clever humor and boyish charm of Scott Heaton, Josh Barto, Mike Walker and Evan Koepnick.
From Facebook: “As you’ve probably noticed when checking your Facebook Events page there’s a lot going on in Milwaukee this weekend. It’s enough to drive a person crazy. Maintain your sanity by opting out of everything and going to see Homegrown Electric Circus instead. They’re performing 7:00 on Saturday night at Comedy Sportz for the low, low price of $5. Why you’d be crazy not to go!”
Who they calling crazy?
