Setting them up

Outside of a brewery, I can’t think of a more quintessential Milwaukee venue than a bowling alley.

Inside of a brewery, I’d be too busy drinking.

But you can drink and laugh – and carouse with keglers – at the Comedy Show Comedy Show, Saturday, Oct. 12, at Landmark Lanes, 2220 N. Farwell Ave.

Jake Kornely is the kingpin hosting, and scheduled performers include

The show starts at 8:30 p.m., but seats fill up fast, so be there when they open the doors at 8. Admission is $6.

Comedy: To feel, think (and sing)

I read this on Facebook:

“Comedy does not exist for laughs. Comedy exists to make you feel and think. It’s the strongest genre and the strongest emotion.”

It was posted by Jacob Bach, co-founder of The Improvised Musical, the Broadway-style song-and-dance shows that are made up right in front of the audience with experienced comedy improvisers and a live band.

T.I.M. has been performing the third Thursday of every month for more than two years, and if you haven’t seen it yet, 7:30 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 17, is your chance. It’s only $5 at Milwaukee’s ComedySportz arena, 420 S. 1st St. If you are a regular T.I.M.-goer (Lord knows there are many.), you know that no two shows are ever alike.

Reserve your tickets by calling ahead on weekdays at (414) 272-8888.
