The cold weather is here to force you into grumpy moods, the days are dark at impossibly early times, and the stress of the holidays is bearing down on you. If only there was a place where you could warm up and laugh the winter worries away… Oh, wait a minute…
FRI. DEC. 7 - M-B COMEDY #160: HEADLINERS FT. NICK NEMEROFF
We’ve had some rising comedy superstars before, but no one quite like Nick Nemeroff. Master of deadpan and absurdity, this comedian has performed across North America and Australia most notably on CONAN, Just For Laughs, the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, and Comedy Central’s Clusterfest.
FRI. DEC. 14 - M-B COMEDY #161: ROYAL CITY HEROES FT. CAI SEPULIS
Cai Sepulis is a rare breed of cool human you don’t often meet. You’ve likely seen their design work all over the city, even if you didn’t know Cai was behind it. Equal parts brand maven, art director, illustrator and design demigod, Cai is the designer behind so many favorite local brands including Fixed Gear Brewing Co, Miijidaa, The Wooly and Royal City Brewing Co. They are also one of the founding partners and creative directors at TOQUE Magazine.
TUES. DEC. 18 - M-B COMEDY #162: ROOKIES (DECEMBER)
We’ve moved Rookies up a week because of the holidays. But we’re holding the very same awesome show we always do. Eight spots for comics of all levels to try new things. Want to grab a spot? Email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will do our best to add you to the lineup!
FRI. DEC. 21 - M-B COMEDY #163: THE HOGWARTS HOUSE CUP
It’s a mystical magical holiday tradition! Decked out in the garbs of their houses, wizard teams from the four Hogwarts houses will be pitted against each other in a tournament of unscripted magic. Who will win your hearts? The pure golden-hearted improv of Griffindoor, the razor-sharp wit of Ravenclaw, the humble-loveliness of Hufflepuff, or the in-your-face ambition of Slytherin? The only way to find out is to save your seat now.
MON. DEC. 31 - M-B COMEDY #164: F**K YOU 2018!
Sure 2018 was not 2017 in terms of shitiness, but there’s still lots of crappy things we’d rather leave behind. Stand-up comedians share some less-than-awesome experiences from their past year, and the M-B Brigade improvises scenes based on the awfulness. Make sure you ring in 2019 with troubles behind you and a big, bright, forward-facing smile on your face.
BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE!
Looking for that special gift that says, “I care about you, but don’t want you to think I’m too serious about things.” Or a gift that says, “You work hard, you deserve to have a little time laughing and not being so serious all the time.” Or even a gift that says, “I love you, but you need to join a weekly class so I can have an evening of me time.”
All these reasons and more are reason enough to wrap someone an online gift card for any live show or improv class.
