We adore this time of year: The crisp evenings, the dewy mornings, the blazing leaves.
There’s football, if you’re into that; and pumpkin-spiced everything; and, of course, all the potential of a new TV season.
Now, Milwaukee Comedy is presenting one more spectacle to anticipate: The return of Retro Comedy Night.
Retro Comedy Night – 8 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 10
Of course, no one is supposed to know which bygone hit TV series Retro Comedy Night will re-enact. But this much we know: The 2015-2016 season kicks off with Retro Comedy’s first staging of a sitcom that aired before the 1970s. It was, in fact, shot in black-and-white.
From the website:
What do you get when you combine the best comedy talent in Milwaukee with great TV shows from the ’70s and ’80s? It’s Retro Comedy Night: A night of new comedy based on old ideas!
This month will be super special: An all new Retro Comedy Night will feature a classic retro sitcom, performed live on stage, classic sitcom trivia, and prizes for YOU!!
We are going way back to the 1960s for this one!
Here’s what else we know: Who’s involved. Directed by the amazing Amanda Sinko, the Retro Comedy Night cast includes:
- Stacy Pawlowski
