The official pre-start to the states largest comedy event! Laugh with 88Nine Radio Milwaukee and some of the best talent Wisconsin has to offer on Tuesday, August 1st at 7:30pm. Presented by 88Nine Radio Milwaukee! A showcase of Wisconsin’s own comedic talents will be at 88.9 Radio Milwaukee studios. Headlining this FREE Pre-Kickoff Event for Milwaukee Comedy Festival is Nate Craig, a Madison-native who has been featured on Comedy Central’s “Roast Battle” and “Tosh.0”, MTV’s “Acting Out”, and AXS Network’s “Gotham Comedy Live”. Nate also does theater tours with Bill Burr and headlines all over the country. This showcase will also feature homegrown Milwaukee talents Greg Bach, Dana Ehrmann, J Tyler Menz and Nate Seek.

Dana Ehrmann

Dana Ehrmann:
When Dana Ehrmann is not at the movies alone seeing a critically-acclaimed dramedy or whipping up a mean bowl of Kraft mac and cheese (shapes, duh), she is a stand-up comic from Milwaukee, WI. She’s performed at the Cream City Comedy Festival and was the runner-up in the 2015 Milwaukee Comedy Cafe Open Mic Competition. Dana first tried stand-up as a student at Carthage College in Kenosha, and has been self-deprecating and discussing sort-of-but-not-quite-adulthood on stage ever since.

Nate Seek:Nate Seek
Nate Seek has been Milwaukee’s sweet prince since he started performing in 2011 and has been considered a “staple” to the Milwaukee Comedy Scene ever since. His humor draws from his experience selling drugs and doing drugs but his favorite drug is Christ’s sweet sweet love. In addition to performing, Nate is also a co-producer on the Cream City Comedy Festival and the Sugar Maple Comedy Showcase.


J Tyler Menz: J Tyler Menz
J Tyler Menz is one sweet pickle. He has worked with a wide range of comedians, including Tig Notaro, Neil Hamburger, and Andy Kindler, and has toured as the featured act for Christopher Titus, Todd Barry, and Steve-O (which was cool because they have matching tattoos). In addition to performing stand up, Tyler produces and hosts many shows in the Milwaukee area including The Goodnight Milwaukee Show (sketch), Voyager (improv), and the Visitors Guide to Springfield podcast. He has also been seen performing at The Milwaukee Comedy Fest, Van’s Warped Tour, The 10,000 Laughs Comedy Festival, The Cream City Comedy Festival, and Gilda’s Laughfest. Check him out on social media @jtylermenz.
