Comedy Night CANCELED BECAUSE OF WEATHER
The talented and wonderful comedian Wendy Berkowitz, hosts our comedy showcase at Wayzata Brew Works. Shows will be on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of the month...with a bonus show if there are five Thursdays! Each show will have three professional comics performing feature length sets. In addition, there will be a couple of up and coming talented local comics performing. Parental guidance is highly encouraged. :
The comics for tonight’s show are:
Ben Marcotte is originally from rural Minnesota but moved to Minneapolis to further pursue standup comedy. Since then, he’s performed all across the Upper Midwest to rave reviews. He’s the type of guy that you have probably seen many times before, but never had the inclination to talk to. Marcotte blends stories of past life experiences with whimsical observations that leave audiences wanting more.
Starting comedy on a whim at an open mic in the year 2000, Mike Brody has since devoted his life to perfecting the delivery of his high-energy act. Bucking the trend of the apathetic comedian, his genuine passion for his craft draws audience members into the unique world of Mike Brody: An affable, clever guy whose life is often derailed by his own neurotic, obsessive-compulsive and clumsy tendencies.
Brody has worked with Jay Pharoah, Dave Attell, Patrice O'Neal, Emo Philips, Joy Behar, Doug Stanhope, Doug Benson, and legendary street performer/madman/savant Wesley Willis. He is the official event comedian for the SyFy Channel’s TV show “Ghost Hunters” and has also appeared on the nationally syndicated radio program "The Bob & Tom Show" as well as "The Dan Patrick Show".
Brody is also the creator of the "Kevin Love Jersey Burning - MN Nice Style" YouTube video, which went viral with over 2.5 million views. It was featured on Sports Center, Sports Illustrated, USA Today, LA Times, Chicago Tribune and nearly every major news/sports site.
Daniel has appeared in the Twin Cities' 10,000 Laughs Festival. You can see him around the cities at the House of Comedy and the Comedy Corner Underground.
