Milwaukee has four very vertical comedians adept at putting audiences very horizontal with laughter.
It’s an improvisational group that calls itself Tall Boys. They are Erik Koconis, Robby McGhee, Lee Rowley and James Boland. Individually, they have an embarrassing wealth of comedy experience. Collectively, they’re unpredictably clever. That’s the wonder of improv.
It just so happens that James, by day, is an educator at Milwaukee’s Tamarack Waldorf School, which happens to be starting a high school next year. To help raise awareness and funds for the high school, the Tall Boys are performing at 7 p.m., Saturday, Nov. 2, at Tamarack Waldorf, 1150 E. Brady St.
Suggested donations are $10 but, of course, we use the word “donation,” which suggests you have discretion to be generous.
Not only will the Tall Boys (coached by imrpov impresario Jared Stepp) perform, but they will feature the standup comedy, the deadpan brilliance of Ryan Lowe.
