One of the more popular open mic venues in Milwaukee is the Art Bar, 722 E. Burleigh Ave., in the Riverwest neighborhood.
That’s where standup comedy performers – both new and veteran – gather on the second and fourth Thursdays of the month to practice their craft before a free audience.
So, this Thursday, Jan. 23, is one of those Thursdays. Get in on the event by being there at 8 p.m. if you want to perform and 8:30 if you just want to laugh. If you go, pay your respects to Josh Balew, the host of the show.
