After a few years without a permanent venue for local and national comedy events, Milwaukee is about to get one.
For a lot of folks in the Milwaukee comedy scene, there are two schools of funny: improv and stand-up. And ne'er the twain shall meet. Steve Breese is hoping to change that. The young comedian and producer is bringing his newest show, "The Comedy Arcade," to the Underground Collaborative in The Shops of Grand Avenue one Thursday night every month, with co-producer Matt Kemple. The inaugural show is tonight at 7:30 p.m.
More than 25 comedy groups and 15 stand-up acts are scheduled to participate in the 2011 Milwaukee Comedy Festival, scheduled for Aug. 4-7 at ComedySportz, 420 S. 1st St.
