Minnesota Public Radio presents Wits™, a live public radio show that brings world-class comedians, actors and musicians to the stage of the Fitzgerald Theater, where host John Moe gives them and the audience the time of their lives. The Huffington Post praised Wits as "one of the rare public radio comedy shows that's actually funny," and in a review of our season finale last June, the City Pages said Wits "deserves to be one of the hottest tickets in town." Find out why this fall! We’ll have hilarious geniuses on stage for some conversation, sketches and game shows; they'll talk about their work and woo and rock you with music.
Julia Sweeney and Martha Wainwright will stop by the Fitz on Friday, November 16th at 8:00 p.m. Julia Sweeney (@JuliaSweeney) is an actress, comedian and writer best known for her work on Saturday Night Live where she was a cast member and also for her monologues “God Said Ha!,” “In the Family Way” and “Letting Go of God.” She’s been a panelist on “Wait Wait ...

Shows start at 8pm, but the party starts early. Come at 7:00 for the tweet-up happy hour. Drinks are half-price until 7:30; Current DJ Barb Abney will spin some songs. Bump into a barter box bargainer and trade one of your anythings for a something else. If you're new to “the Twitter,” we've got your back, with Twitter tutors ready to help get you set up and tweeting away. After the show, we keep the lights on and the bar open, you will have a chance to interact with other Wits fans and may be a performer or two.
