Laughing Liberally Milwaukee’s War On X-mas Comedy Extravaganza
December is a special time. A time where Donald Trump and conservatives on Fox News pretend there is a “War on Christmas.” Laughing Liberally Milwaukee, a monthly progressive political comedy show featuring some of Milwaukee’s top progressive comedians, decided to make their fantasy a reality with their annual War On X-mas Comedy Extravaganza. And with Republican attacks on voting, health care, immigrants, the environment and more, we need progressive laughs now more than ever.
Laughing Liberally Milwaukee is hosted by comedian, cartoonist and progressive talk radio host Matthew Filipowicz. Matthew’s work has 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, and countless sites in the progressive blogosphere including Salon, Daily Kos and the Huffington Post.
Comedians on the December 14th bill include Ton Johnson, Mary Collie, Bob Rok, Jen Durbent, Raegan Niemela and sketch comedy troupe The Accountants Of Homeland Security.
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 Milwaukee writer and historian John Gurda.
