Inspired by the sketch comedy of Milwaukee’s broadminded Comedy and Patrick Schmitz’s semi-annual Sketch 22 and encouraged by Milwaukee Comedy Festival founder Matt Kemple, a handful of Milwaukee comedy performers formed the Sketch Marks late last year.
Sketch Marks includes individuals* recognizable from other Milwaukee comedy groups such as ComedySportz, The Improvised Musical (T.I.M.), Bye Bye Liver, The Dinner Detective, Tall Boys and Racine’s Over Our Heads Players.
After two appearances in the Comedy Arcade Show, Sketch Marks is presenting its first stand-alone show.
See Sketch Marks at 7:30 p.m., Friday, March 28, in the Arcade Theatre, at the Underground Collaborative, 161 W. Wisconsin Ave., lower level.
Tickets are $7 in advance and $10 at the door.
Stop missing The Onion in Milwaukee, or at least its online offshoot, A.V. Club Milwaukee.
Because Matt Wild and Tyler Maas are starting Milwaukee Record. That's why.
According to an article in the Shepherd Express and one in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel and an interview with Milwaukee Magazine, Matt and Tyler are launching their Milwaukee Record website April 7 that aims to do a lot of what A.V. Club Milwaukee did before its demise in December. Matt was the former entertainment site's editor, and Tyler a writer.
As the accompanying image attests, Milwaukee Record promises plenty of amusement, sprinkled with doses of Uecker.
