See "God" in St. Francis

An old Woody Allen joke, paraphrasing because we’re too lazy to look it up, but he gets into a fender bender and responds, as God would, by telling the fender bender offender “Be fruitful and multiply. But not in those words.”

So why rely on us? Soulstice Theatre is performing Woody Allen’s “God” Jan. 24 through Feb. 8 at the
Keith Tamsett Theatre, 3770 S. Pennsylvania Ave., in St. Francis.

It’s the directing debut of Soulstice alumna Stephanie Graham and features a fitting giveback. From Facebook:

Soulstice continues its mission of giving back the community. For this play, Soulstice will partner with Operation Dream, Inc., a mentoring program designed to give young males in urban Milwaukee the support and guidance they need to become men of significance in their community.

Tickets to see “God” are $18 and $20. Click here for details.

Another Goodnight, Milwaukee

Dear Milwaukee,

By the time you read this, the tickets for The Goodnight Milwaukee Show might all be spoken for already. But just in case, I want you to know about it because I know you will want to attend, if you can.

Goodnight Milwaukee is a late-night comedy talk show hosted by two of Milwaukee’s funniest characters – Tyler Menz and Jake Kornely. It’s a variety show that includes guests, games and – as they say on Facebook – “jokes, lots of jokes!”

It’s only $7 if you get your ticket online (Click here.) or only $10 at the door. But if you buy ahead, you save 30% and assure yourself a seat.

It’s at 9 p.m., Saturday, Jan. 25, in the Arcade Theatre, which is in the Underground Collaborative, 161 W. Wisconsin Ave., lower level.

Anyway, I hope you’re well. Yeah, it’s been “cold enough to freeze the balls off a brass monkey” lately, but hey, it’s winter in Wisconsin. You’ve got Milwaukee Comedy to keep you warm.

See you at the UC,


New Year, new Comedy Arcade

We have given ourselves permission to say “Happy New Year” until Jan. 31.

With that, we welcome a new year to The Comedy Arcade Show, which opens at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Jan. 24, for its first run of 2014.

The Comedy Arcade Show is a monthly collaborative showcase of local – and sometimes imported – comedy talent. The new year kickoff features a Milwaukee favorite: Ryan Lowe. Besides his hilarious standup routines, Ryan is creator of the movie, “Moby Dick: A Tale of a Whale,” and he is a sketch comedy writer and contributor to the biweekly Writers Block comedy writers workshop.

Besides Ryan, the first 2014 Comedy Arcade Show includes standup comedy form Erik Edmunds, of the Whiskey Sweats Showcase, Steve Breese, the show’s emcee, and maybe even a surprise improvisational comedy act.

The Comedy Arcade Show is in the Arcade Theatre, part of the Underground Collaborative, 161 W. Wisconsin Ave., lower level. Please click here for tickets, which cost $7 in advance or $10 at the door.
