Stand Up! Comedy Presents a Live Stand-Up Comedy Game Show. It's Make Me Laugh!

 

We bring six contestants out of the audience, one at a time. Six comedians do their best to get each contestant to laugh in 60 seconds or less. The comedians can do just about anything without touching the contestant to get them to laugh. The contestants do their best to hold out for 60 seconds a comedian. 

 

The two contestants that hold out the longest will meet the three comedians who got folks to laugh the fastest to see who wins the grand prize! (The prize is not grand.)

 

We also have special guests Tommy Arnold and Jesse Hett performing between rounds. And we are lucky enough to have Pressure Anya DJ Duo there to provide music before, during, and after the comedy! Come out and watch mayhem and merriment ensue!!
