Way back in the early 2010s, FM102.1’s “Kramp & Adler” morning program was metro Milwaukee’s go-to destination for laughs between 20-year-old songs by The Offspring. For a couple years before Brian Kramp was unceremoniously ousted from the show in 2013, the duo parlayed their comedic consciousness into an annual Kramp & Adler’s Comedy Festival at Turner Hall that brought such notable stand-ups as Marc Maron, Kristen Schaal, and Eugene Mirman to town. On Friday, October 9, the station’s stand-up show will return to Turner Hall with a new name—Adler’s Fall Comedy Classic—and an impressive cast of comedians including The Sklar Brothers, Nikki Glaser, and Brody Stevens.
This occasion marks an exceptionally rare Milwaukee appearance by Randy and Jason Sklar, who are frequent guests of Madison’s far superior comedy club and shot their recent Netflix special, What Are We Talking About?, at the capital city’s Majestic Theater last year. The veteran twin comedy act will be preceded by the utterly hilarious @midnight favorite (“Wipe it!”) and Last Comic Standing success story, Nikki Glaser, and terrifyingly upbeat likes of Brody Stevens. Tickets for the 8 p.m. show (7 p.m. doors) go on sale at noon on Friday, August 21 and cost $24.50.
UPDATE: Due to a scheduling conflict, Brody Stevens will no longer perform. Canadian comic Jon Dore has been added to the lineup in Stevens’ place.
