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.
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 Craig is a nationally touring, headlining comedian and was recently featured on Comedy Central’s “Roast Battle”, and MTV’s “Acting Out”. He’s been on AXS Network’s “Gotham Comedy Live”, was a cast member on truTV’s “World’s Dumbest” and has also appeared on Comedy Central’s Tosh.0 and “Mash-up”, which he also wrote for.
