The Hook & Laughter Monthly Comedy Series deviates from the traditional club formula: host, feature, and a single headliner to instead feature top-notch local and regional comics who bring their first-rate material to the stage for equitable sized sets. Hosted by local comedy veteran, Chris Maddock.
This month features an eclectic mix of outstanding local artists including: whip-smart and not afraid to prove it, Emily Galati (Conan, NBC’s Last Comic Standing, Comic’s Unleashed, and Gotham Live) standup comedian and actor, Mike Lester (Funny Or Die, City Pages 2016 ‘Artist of the Year’, Growler Magazine’s 2015 ‘Top 5 Comics to Watch’), a comic who’s work is incredibly personal, bitingly poignant and a little absurd, Shelly Paul (10,000 Laughs Comedy Festival, Growler Magazine’s 2017 Top 5 comics to Watch in Minneapolis, producer and host of “PSSY CTRL” at the Comedy Corner Underground), Minnesota’s funniest downer, humorist, Comrade Tripp (10,000 Laughs Comedy Festival, Sisyphus Brewing’s Funniest Person in Minneapolis 2017 Finalist, 2018 House of Comedy’s Funniest Person with a Day Job Contest 2018 when he was unemployed. 2019 Funniest Person with a Day Job Contest Runner-up) and Tommy Bayer (2018 Funniest Person Contest Winner, 10,000 Laughs Comedy Festival, 2018 Growler Magazine Top Five Comic’s to Watch).
