Subjective: A Comedic Showing
Apr 14 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Comedic and artistic tastes are subjective. Some people like Louis CK and Picasso. Others prefer Maria Bamford and Andy Warhol. The Caste of Killers Comedy Collective and Var Gallery & Studios present the SUBJECTIVE showcase, where the comedians are the artists and their sets, the work of art. Each comic on display will prepare an artist statement and at the close of the show, we’ll take questions and critiques from the audience. By the end of the night, our hope is that there is no question in the audience’s minds: comedy is art.

Neil Hamburger in Milwaukee!
May 13 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm
Neil Hamburger in Milwaukee! @ Club Garibaldi's | Milwaukee | Wisconsin | United States

Neil Hamburger returns to Milwaukee for an epic One Night Only show with special guests and lots of funny. See him live at Club Garibaldi on Saturday, May 13, 2017! This show will sell out, seating is limited.

America’s Funnyman Neil Hamburger is the hard-est working comedian in existence, performing up to 399 shows a year internationally to critical acclaim and audience bewilderment. He has toured as the hand-picked opener for Tenacious D, Tim & Eric, and Faith No More, appeared on TV shows ranging from Fox News’ Red Eye to Tim and Eric Awesome Show Great Job! and Jimmy Kimmel Live!, and worked extensively with Tom Green on his internet talk show. Among his dozen or so albums and DVDs is the new LP release Hot February Night.

RECENT PRESS:

“A phlegm- lled sack of putrid self-loathing, Neil Hamburger is the perfect satire of a slick, profes- sional nightclub comedian. If you’ve ever suspected that behind the glossy veneer of fake bonhomie of those perma-smile acts lies an ugly, embittered, grotesque soul — well Hamburger is that demon made esh. In some living Sisyphean hell, every night he dons his tuxedo, greases down his hair and ploughs through the vile set that disgusts even him, just so he can earn a three-piece chicken din- ner. His contempt for his own pitiful existence is surpassed only for his contempt for the audience who compel him trudge through his despicable cavalcade of jokes. And my, these gags are certainly not for the faint of heart, as he plumbs the depths of depravity for the sake of a laugh.” — Chortle (UK)

“Hamburger is the clapped-out husk of a decorous Southern gentleman, now coughing in painful hacks, suppurating lth through his tuxedo, and her to tip a slurry of abuse all over celebrity and modern life…a combination of malignance and desiccated vaudeville.” — T he Guardian (UK)

“Neil Hamburger remains the greatest comedian I’ve seen the greater majority of an audience walk out on…. No one was leaving their seats this evening though, as this peerless performer shocked and delighted in equal measure…. On the road for 12 years with scarcely a day off, Hamburger is a condemned showbiz lag, doomed to perform his antagonistic anti-comedy to potential hostility forever.” — The Scotsman (UK)

“A brilliantly awful persona of an old-school, C-list funnyman — the kind with an ill- tting tuxedo and an enormous, greasy combover — on a very bad night. Neil Hamburger toys with an audience’s expectations (and patience), and indeed his act is a kind of rude commentary on stand-up comedy altogether.” — New York Times

Eddie Pepitone in Milwaukee!
May 19 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Caste of Killers and Milwaukee Comedy, in conjunction with Chicago’s Lincoln Lodge, are proud to bring Eddie Pepitone, the Bitter Buddha to Milwaukee on Friday, May 19th, at 8pm, it’s a ONE NIGHT ONLY event starring the bellicose star of stage and screen.

The very definition of a cult favorite, Eddie Pepitone is an LA staple that has been in and around this game for a long time.

Just about the very definition of a cult favorite, Eddie Pepitone is an LA staple that has been in and around this game for a long time.

He is a force of nature on stage, switching between social rage and self-doubt. His shows are an energetic combo of calm and chaos, blue-collar angst and sardonic enlightenment. Few comedians working today channel the power of the rant better than Eddie Pepitone.

 

 

In addition to his regular stand-up shows, Eddie is stand-out comic/character actor. Beginning in New York City’s improv/sketch scene (where he quickly became a regular face), and continuing on to recurring roles on Late Night with Conan O’Brien. Eddie has also appeared on numerous comedy TV shows, including The Life and Times of Tim, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, The Sarah Silverman Program, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Last Comic Standing, and Chappelle’s Show. Fans also might recognize Pepitone from his role in the hit comedy Old School or from his multiple award-winning short, Runyon: Just Above Sunset.

He is also an accomplished dramatic actor, having appeared on Law and Order: Criminal Intent, The Beat, and Now and Again.

Eddie lives in LA now, because there’s no shortage of things to be mad at there.

The show will also feature nationally touring local hot bots, Greg Bach (The Badger Journal Times) and Jason Hillman (Great American Comedy Fest), and will feature some super special guests.

The Underground Collaborative is located in the lower level of the Grand Avenue Mall. Tickets for this incredible show are only $15 online@eventbrite and $20 at the door. More information is available at MilwaukeeComedy.com.
