From Facebook: “This comedian-run, independently-produced comedy show that started with a couple of funny guys and a microphone has grown into a full-fledged professional comedy extravaganza. The Caste of Killers showcase only the freshest and brightest comedy acts. From new, local, up-and-coming comics to nationally-touring headliners. The Milwaukee Stand-Up Comedy Showcase is the hidden jewel soon to be a starring in the next QVC Commercial.”
