If you have had the misfortune of missing the Goodnight Milwaukee Show with Jake Kornely and Tyler Menz, we pity you. Because you have missed out on jokes and jokey bits and amusing interviews and Milwaukee roulette and Chris the Intern and original music and cooking demonstrations and videos, including this number by Ryan Lowe and Robby McGhee.

Lucky for you, like the Postman, the opportunity to see Goodnight Milwaukee rings more than once. Follow this innovative late-night live-theater comedy show on Twitter (@GoodnightMilwaukee), friend it on Facebook and check back on MilwaukeeComedy.com for updates.

The next Goodnight Milwaukee show is part of the kickoff of the 9th annual Milwaukee Comedy Festival. Catch them in the Milwaukee Comedy Showcase at 7 p.m., Wednesday, Aug. 6, at the Next Act Theatre space, 255 S. Water St. Also in the kickoff:

  • Crouch Comedy – the Milwaukee sketch group that helped launch the 8th annual Milwaukee Comedy Festival and has performed shows at Milwaukee’s Arcade Theatre and at a fund raiser at ComedySportz

The whole kickoff is $8 in advance and $10 at the door. Get tickets here.
