If you started counting at New Year's, we're about halfway through 2014 on the way to the 9th annual Milwaukee Comedy Festival.*
To give you a bit of a taste for how funny that will be (and to prime the pump for the big show), Milwaukee Comedy is having two fundraising shows this weekend, Friday, April 4, and Saturday, April 5.
You'll start feeling funny at 7:30 both nights. Milwaukee standup comedians, improv comedians and sketch comedians are displaying their talent. Specifically:
- Friday, April 4 – standup from funny guys Jeff Lampton and Jason Hillman, improv from Chicago-based Chairs and Milwaukee's own Tall Boys
- Saturday, April 5 – standup from Steve Breese, sketch from Crouch Comedy and Goodnight Milwaukee
Both nights include giveaways and, according to an advance notice of the events, "a few surprises."
Both shows are in the Arcade Theatre of the Underground Collaborative, 161 W. Wisconsin Ave., lower level.
Tickets are $15 in advance by clicking here or $18 at the door.
