  • Bucket Club: Open Mic Comedy

Doors open at 8pm, names go in a bucket. 9pm sharp they start coming out and comedians hit the stage for a 1-3 minute set. Repeat until 11pm. The goal is to get as many comedians on stage as possible. Best sets of the night get to close out the show with longer sets. Hosted by Bob Fredericks who will be on the side stage watching the sets. A good chance to audition for future shows. Message facebook.com/lowerlevelcomedy for limited pre-signups.

  • Brent Terhune Live Stand Up Comedy

Characters, voices, one liners, and time-tested monologues- Brent Terhune is the embodiment of all these things. Not many comics can pull off Brent’s laid-back style of comedy and still remain just as absurd and funny, but equally relevant and relatable at the same time. Currently, Brent is a writer for the nationally syndicated Bob & Tom Show. He’s been featured on Fox’s “Laughs” and his debut comedy album went all the way to &#35&#59;1 on the iTunes charts. He’s also appeared at the Limestone Comedy Festival and gets regular play on SiriusXM.

  • Super Happy Funtime Burlesque Farewell Tour!

SHFB Is a 12 member live band, a burlesque troupe, and a circus act that is all together too contemporary, too modern, too bawdy, and too controversial to be defined just as “burlesque”. For 10 years it has been traveling the nation in its big red school bus, performing what can best be described as performance art and musical theater bridged with burlesque. Reminisce of the early stage productions of Rocky Horror and Hedwig and the Angry Inch&#59; this rock and roll circus/burlesque/comedy/DIY punk theater monstrosity must be seen to be believed. And this is your last chance to see it
