Make Me Laugh! - Humboldt is back and better than ever for 2016. If you've never seen the show, it's simple. We bring audience members on stage one at a time and give our comedians each 60 seconds to make each contestant laugh. Those who hold out the longest get ridiculously fabulous prizes! (Well, they're ridiculous.) Think you have what it takes to hold out? Want to watch other people try? Come out and play!

 

This month we're bringing in two heavy hitters from the Bay Area - Matt "The Mangler" Gubser and Iris "Brawling" Benson are squaring off against defending champion Josh "Bust em up" Barnes, and Matt "Redbeard" Redbeard. 

 

As always, Talvi Fried and Tony Persico will be your hosts, and No Covers will be providing the music! There's no telling how ridiculous it's going to get, but I know you want to come find out! Don't miss it

PLAZA GRILL

SATURDAY, JULY 9, 2016

 

Make Me Laugh! is back, and we're at the Plaza Grill in Arcata! Join us for our inaugural edition at the Plaza Grill View Room in Arcata. We are so grateful for the opportunity to show Arcata what Make Me Laugh! is all about.

 

If you've never seen the show, it's pretty simple. Local improv jazz duo No Covers gives the show a little class and plays for you. Then we start the show by giving our comedians each 5 minutes to show you how funny they are.

 

Next, we bring audience members on stage (one at a time) and give each of our comedians 60 seconds to try to make each contestant laugh. The contestants who hold out the longest get ridiculously fabulous prizes!

 

It's a competition for both the comedians and the contestants, that no one takes seriously - because it is the silliest time you can legally have in Humboldt County. Think you have what it takes to hold out? Want to watch other people try? It’s comedian vs. contestant in a battle of wit and will!
