Tuesday Night Comedy Showcase

The content on this page is provided by a Time Out partner.

We are proudly presenting a NEW comedy night in Uptown, Minneapolis! Each Tuesday Night Comedy Showcase will feature an array of fresh/local comics and seasoned, nationally touring pros. Drink specials will be provided by Budweiser, we have DJ King Gorilla giving us music, and oh - no big deal - but it is FREE. No cover! Let us make your Tuesday night fun and full of laughter! Hosted by Hessley Rey (www.hessleyrey.com), a rambling and loving hostess, and held within the warm embrace of the James Ballentine Uptown VFW, you NEED to be part of this great new room. Our first week was insane with a packed room and a strong line-up of nationally touring comedians. This is the type of room that has already become a hidden gem - if you like Letterman/Conan/Last Comic Standing/professional comedy, this is the place to go. And It is free! (What?! And there is free parking. WHAT?!) We will have a fresh, new line up every week. Your support (by coming and telling your friends!) will keep us able to continue providing a solid comedy room in Uptown, so get over there! Our 3.3.15 show line up is... HESSLEY REY hosting (BUT WHO CARES! She will just ramble and talk to the DJ Gerald Brickford/King Gorilla) and do one hilarious joke BUT THEN: JAMIE BLANCHARD! He is a clever story-teller with ranty bits that will leave you rolling with laughter. See more of Jamie at https://www.rooftopcomedy.com/comics/JamieBlanchard COLLEEN DOYLE JUSTICE! Okay. This woman is probably one of the most funny ladies in the Minneapolis scene (and the world). https://www.rooftopcomedy.com/comics/ColleenJustice (Just go to that link and LOOK AT HER. WE DARE YOU!) BRIAN MILLER! People always ask us, "was Brian Miller on the 'Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson?'" and we say YES. BECAUSE HE WAS AND HE'S DOING THIS TUESDAY NIGHT SHOW FOR YOU NOW. Look at him here: http://acmecomedycompany.com/comics/features/bryan-miller/ NATE ABSHIRE! Nate is probably one of the most sardonic, intelligent, seriously funny comics you will ever encounter. He is a regular at Acme, has an IQ on par with Hawking, and you can look at his face here: https://www.rooftopcomedy.com/comics/NateAbshire DARYL HORNER! Self-proclaimed "pseudo-celebrity" and political commentator, Daryl has hosted, produced, supported, and given his all to the Minneapolis comedy scene. His work has moved mountains for the rest of us, and his quick and witty stage presence and timely humor is something to behold. Come see him and follow him on Twitter! https://twitter.com/darylhorner ISAAC MILTON WITTY! Wait...wasn't he our headliner from last week? Oh, he was? Oh, and he's helping to produce this show for you guys for free? OH, and he's back AGAIN? OH! AND HE'S BEEN ON LETTERMAN AND CONAN AND HE FOUNDED THE LOCAL SKETCH GROUP CALLED THE TURKEYS? HIM?! Okay then. www.isaacwitty.com CHUCK GOLLOP! Former police officer, hilarious and intelligent guy, creator of a popular podcast, pretty much the best guy in the world - we are so lucky to have him be an integral part of this show altogether - well, look for yourself: http://www.chuckgollopcomedy.com/ JAKEY EMMERT! Winner of the "Twin Cities Funniest Person" contest in 2012, Acme regular and overall amazing performer, check him out at http://jakeyon.blogspot.com/ DEREK HENKELS! Acme regular, super hilarious guy, his bio reads, "I tell jokes. Mostly set-ups and punchlines," and he has a TIME magazine photo on his website about coming out as gay and it is poorly photoshopped to show his face over what we are assuming was Justin Bieber's. LOOK AT IT: http://derekhenkels.com/ and...your headliner... KJELL BJORGEN! This is awkward because we don't even know how to pronounce his last name and he is our special guest. This man has a COMEDY CENTRAL page, was on "Live at Gotham" and many other shows, and he is coming to close our night out in style. Seeing him perform live is a beautiful gift from the heavens and you get to see him for free (WHAT?!) on 3.3.15. Tell your mama and all your friends to get over here and look at his CC clips here: http://www.cc.com/comedians/kjell-bjorgen EVEN IF IT IS SNOWING, WE HAVE FREE COVERED PARKING IN THE REAR, SO GET YOUR BUTTS IN THESE SEATS SO WE CAN KEEP THIS COMEDY NIGHT GOING!
