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.
