It's Time to Get Out Your Laughing Shoes Again!

I am a huge fan of stand up, improv and anything to do with comedy. It would be really cool if we could start to build a bigger comedy community in the Detroit area. Currently there are not many places that host local comedians around here. Off the top of my head, I can think of just a few...Go Comedy in Ferndale, Planet Ant in Hamtramck, and Comedy Castle in Royal Oak. Not many places to go work on your material in front of a crowd and perfect your skills. There are a lot of funny people in Metro Detroit looking for a way to showcase their talents. So, I am making a point to tell my readers about local shows so that we can start to build that community.


That's why Motor City Improv has started a monthly event at the Park Bar in Detroit. They have gathered together 7 performers, including Tim Kay, Joe Davis, Lesley Braden, Billy Zakolski, Rich Grenwick, Matt Klug and Dave Landau, to perform for you this Thursday, August 16th. Doors are at 7:30 and the show starts at 8 o'clock. It is only $3 to get in for the night and there is a bar inside The Elizabeth Theatre so that you can kick back with a couple of cocktails while you enjoy the acts. The show features games such as Oxygen, Deprivation, ABC Mousetraps, Hot Sauce and Winning Moment. I have to be honest, I am not familiar with these specific games, but I am sure that they would be fun and interesting to see. 

We will keep you updated as we learn about more dates and shows. We encourage you to go out and support both local musicians and comedians!
