July Stand-Up Showcase

From those comically busy folks at Caste of Killers Comedy Collective comes another Milwaukee Stand-Up Comedy Showcase.

That’s just what it sounds like: The collective displaying some of the funniest talent they can assemble. Specifically, this show – at 8:30 p.m., Friday July 19, includes:

  • Christopher E Barnes
  • Josh Ballew
  • Mark Placek
  • Greg Willett
  • Krains Butter
  • Jake Kornely 

The venue is the always intimate Karma Lounge, 600 E. Ogden Ave. Admission is $10 at the door or $5 in advance online.

Homegrown 50% off

Milwaukee’s four-man improv team known as Homegrown Electric Circus has announced a special half-off show.

Because Saturday, July 20, they’re performing a two-man show, that’s why.

It’ll be a first for Scott Heaton and Josh Barto, to do a whole comedy show with just the two of them. But it’s improv. Every performance is a first.

You can witness their debut for only $5 at 7 p.m. at ComedySportz, 420 S. 1st St.
