Complimentary comedy companions

So here’s where it would literally pay to have friends.

Because ComedySportz is having a weekend deal. That’s why.

If you go to one of the evening shows (7:30 p.m. or 10 p.m.) Friday, June 21, or Saturday, June 22, your friend gets in for nothing. (Or you get in for nothing, if you get your friend to take you.)

And that includes the show we previously mentioned at 10 p.m. Friday, with the ComedySportz Rec League champions playing a professional ComedySportz team.

If you don’t know what we’re talking about, ComedySportz is a game-oriented improvisational comedy show that’s all-age appropriate and never the same twice.

So try finding some friends and asking if they’re free this weekend. At ComedySportz, they are.

Here’s the trick: Click here for tickets or reserve them at (414) 272-8888 or just show up at 420 S. 1st St. and use the code word: Howie.

One of the purposes of the Comedy Arcade shows at downtown Milwaukee’s Arcade Theatre is to showcase Milwaukee comedy talent.

The main purpose is to entertain Milwaukee audiences.

This sneak peek at one of the newest Comedy Arcade performers, Josh Balew, should help fill both purposes.

Josh is performing along with Jake Kornely and Kenny DeForest.

Plus, you’ll see the improvisational comedy of Busy Bar, featuring Vince Figueroa and Lee Rowley.

The show is at 7:30 p.m., Thursday, June 20, at the Arcade Theatre (with its new ceiling), 161 W. Wisconsin Ave., lower level.
