8 PM – 10 PM

We are BACK and in a brand new, renovated, AMAZING SPACE in the heart of Minneapolis. You can’t beat this free show and we have headlining comedians performing for you (sort of secretly in an underground fashion). Tell your friends (quietly) and get there early to guarantee a seat. We can’t wait!

Thank you Kare11 and Boyd Huppert for honoring our post with your story!
