A once-in-a-lifetime event: Eight hand-picked intrepid women and men of Milwaukee. Each singularly adept at telling stories and joking into microphones. One by one, they shall stand before a live audience and submit their comedic powers to the unforgiving scrutiny of advanced recording technology. Together, they are destined to forge a permanent record of their individual performances. And it shall be called:

Comedic Release Vol. 2.

At 8 p.m., Saturday, May 31, eight comedians will perform a show at the Underground Collaborative, 161 W. Wisconsin Ave., lower level (thus, Underground!). And the show will be recorded and released free to audience members as an honest-to-goodness CD, including the eight-minute comedic stylings of each of the Milwaukee comedy artists.

Comedic Release Vol. 2 follows the success of the sold-out pilot show, Jan. 31. Entertainers for the sequel include:

  • Greg Bach, your host
  • Josh Ballew
  • Liza Marie
  • Mario Robinson
  • Eric Thorson
  • Allison Dunne
  • Jason Hillman and
  • Shawn Shelnutt

In other words, if you saw the first Comedic Release, you’re not seeing any repeats.

Tickets are $10 at the door and $8 online.
