It’s time to get your gut busted as the comedy kings (and the occasional queen) of Minneapolis take the stage and battle for your hearts, laughs, and, yes, even the occasional snort. We’re talking about a showing of the best in the Comedy Corner Underground’s new festival, the Mini-Minneapolis Comedy Fest. Performers who have graced the David Letterman Show and Comedy Central will take a stab at entertaining Minnesotans in nine themed shows.
Tonight’s show will pin emcees from the hottest comedy clubs in town against each other, battling to win the title of Minneapolis’s funniest emcee. Tomorrow (Wednesday) night, it’s all about Twitter—jokes in 140 characters or less. And the comedians hope to keep you laughing as the shows continue with the “Punchline Punchout,” an open-mic night, and round two of “The Dirty Show.” A knockout hit ends the festival, as all of the best acts return for an encore performance in “The Best of the Fest” show. It’s about time you made time for a fun ab workout.
