Laughing Liberally Milwaukee

July 6, 2019 8:00 p.m.

With Donald Trump and Republican attacks on health care, immigrants, the environment and more, we need progressive laughs now more than ever. That’s why we’re excited to present Laughing Liberally Milwaukee, a monthly progressive political comedy show featuring some of Milwaukee’s top liberal and progressive comedians. Laughing Liberally Milwaukee is hosted by comedian, cartoonist and progressive talk radio host Matthew Filipowicz. Matthew’s work have been featured on CNN, NPR, PBS, HBO, BBC, Ain’t It Cool News, the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, the Atlantic, the Nation, the London Times, and countless sites in the progressive blogosphere including Salon, Daily Kos and the Huffington Post. Comedians on the July 6th bill include Jason Hillman, Mary Collie, Marcos Lara, Jen Durbent, Brittany Tillander and sketch comedy group The Accountants of Homeland Security. In addition to some of the finest progressive comedians Milwaukee has to offer, each Laughing Liberally Milwaukee will feature a special interview with a local activist, journalist, or political figure. This month’s guests are Leslie Fillingham and Chad Trepanier who will discuss protecting abortion access and standing up to hate at Abortion Access Front’s upcoming Garbage Fyre Festival.
