In a harsh and ever-worsening world, Pera’s Adult Swim program, Joe Pera Talks With You, is a dash of positivity and a welcomed weekly 11-minute respite from the difficulty and negativity that seem to envelop modern existence. Over the course of the program’s nine near-perfect episodes, Pera helped viewers pick out the perfect Saturday breakfast, spoke about the wonder of minerals, taught us to dance and to fall in love with The Who’s “Baba O’Riley” all over again, restored his soul with a fall drive, and soothed us back to sleep with sheet music. In short, it’s a fantastic show…and not just because most of it was filmed in Milwaukee and Pera says he cast his “Nana” by scouting local fish frys.
While we cross our fingers for a second season of the heartwarming comedy, we’re happy to announce that Pera will return to Milwaukee on Saturday, August 11 to perform at The Underground Collaborative as part of “The Blueberry Tour.” The incomparable comic will headline a showcase that will also feature Conner O’Malley—a Joe Pera Talks With You writer, producer, and series regular (as well as a founding member of #MinionSquad)—and Dan Licata.
