With Donald Trump and Republican attacks on health care, immigrants, the environment and more, we need progressive laughs now more than ever. That’s why we’re excited to present Laughing Liberally Milwaukee, a monthly progressive political comedy show featuring some of Milwaukee’s top liberal and progressive comedians.
Laughing Liberally Milwaukee is hosted by comedian, cartoonist, satirist and progressive talk radio host Matthew Filipowicz. Matthew’s work have been featured on CNN, NPR, PBS, HBO, BBC, Ain’t It Cool News, the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, the Atlantic, the Nation, the London Times, RT TV and countless sites in the progressive blogosphere including Salon, Daily Kos and the Huffington Post.
Comedians on the March 17th bill include: Ton Johnson, Jacob Bach, Kaitlin McCarthy, Cal Smith, Shawn Vasquez and sketch comedy group, Broadminded.
In addition to some of the finest progressive comedians Milwaukee has to offer, each Laughing Liberally Milwaukee will feature a special interview with a local activist, journalist, or political figure. This month’s guest is Kathy Flores from Diverse and Resilient, an organization working to achieve health equity and improve the safety and well-being of LGBTQ people in Wisconsin.
