June Shows

June shows are starting to trickle in. Here are a couple at the Comedy Corner Underground in Minneapolis, 1501 Washington Avenue South, Minneapolis, MN, United States:

June 16 & 17, 8pm – Triple Feature – Three comics, three feature length sets!

In the tradition of the Three Amigos, the Hudson Brothers and Larry, Moe and Curly and/or Shemp, the Comedy Corner Underground presents Triple Feature, a monthly show inspired by comedy’s Rule of Three.
Admittedly, great comedy threesomes are rarer than romantic threesomes, and usually twice as awkward, so rather than crowded onto an already intimate stage, you’ll see three great comics take their turn in the spotlight, each performing feature-length sets. We won’t even charge you extra, unless you bring a date.
It could take you a year, or even a lifetime, to catch these performers individually, so when we say this show represents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, we’re not exaggerating, much!

June 23, 8pm – Real Shit 

A storytelling show featuring the Twin Cities’ best comedians and performers sharing hilarious, profound, and true tales about moments when the shit hit the fan. We’ll hear stories about heartbreak, broken condoms, lost jobs, lost dignity, and much worse. It’s like hearing your drunken friend tell that story about eating 30 pickled eggs in one sitting and how it ended his marriage—but we only take $7 from you instead of “borrowing” $300.

To round out the party we’ve added live local music, and even a drawing for one audience member to win the chance to tell their own story. Riding that line halfway between sad and hilarious, we provide the opportunity to laugh, commiserate, and feel schadenfreude all at once, just like that time your elderly aunt fell down the stairs. If you can’t help but find humor in times when life hands you decidedly less than lemons, then this is the place for you. Come join us as we search together for diamonds in the doo doo.

Also featured will be a HOLIDAY RE-GIFTING OPPORTUNITY where audience members can bring in a holiday gift they can’t stand and try to swap it for something better. (Political metaphor intended.) Gift wrap table provided for donation.

Tickets for the Twin Cities’ January 19th What a Joke Fest are $10 advanced, $12 at the door, all proceeds to be donated to the ACLU. (Serious!
