The Blueberry Tour with Joe Pera, Conner O’Malley, and Dan Licata

You’re probably concerned – are these actors doing standup? That is definitely something to be afraid of but no, we’re standups who made a show and have good solid jokes and promise that afterwards, you will feel like you spent your time and money well. We know that August evenings are valuable but please come, you have our word that it’ll be a good and funny time.
