After a couple of years away, Milwaukee Record’s long-running Roast Of Milwaukee event is back! Like previous years, the event—which is done in association with the Milwaukee Comedy Festival—will feature a stacked cast of local comedians gently (or, in some cases, viciously) making fun of our fair city. This year’s Roast Of Milwaukee will take place at The Cooperage on Wednesday, October 5. Tickets are on sale NOW.
This year’s locally-sourced batch of Roasters includes: Dana Ehrmann, Ton Johnson, Luise Noé, Mark Vegas, Ryan Mason, Raegan Niemela, Chris Schmidt, and more TBA. Joining the homegrown humorists is event host Kristin Brey of “As Goes Wisconsin,” as well as a handful of surprise guests taking swipes at the city.
And the laughs won’t just be at the expense of Milwaukee. A portion of the show’s proceeds will be donated to Milwaukee Women’s Center. Event sponsor Lakefront Brewery will have beers on special all night long. Tickets—which are limited to just 160 available seats!!!—are $10 in advance and $15 at the door. The fun starts at 7:30 p.m (doors at 6:30 p.m.). We’ll see you there!
