New Meetup: Fringe Fest - The Big Four Oh: 40 Jokes, Poems and Stories by Brian Beatty

Announcing a new Meetup for The Twin Cities Night Life Meetup Group!

What: Fringe Fest - The Big Four Oh: 40 Jokes, Poems and Stories by Brian Beatty

When: Saturday, August 14,[masked]:30 PM

Where: Bryant Lake Bowl
810 W Lake St
Minneapolis, MN 55408

This one I picked for the age thing. Maybe I'll list it with WONRO.

Frankly I'm a little leery of one man shows. I mean, one person shows. Sorry. That wasn't PC of me. Anyway, I've never seen this guy person. He's got some good quotes, but anyone willing to buy someone a drink can get a good quote. I'm taking a chance. It's a topic that shouldn't be tough to mine. I'm guessing it might be a little like standup. But we'll see. It's not until the 14th, so there's time to check other show's reviews.

Show starts at 1. If anyone wants to meet for lunch or drinks beforehand, let me know. Tickets are $12 plus a $4 Fringe button. You only need on Fringe button for all the shows, and you can get them at the ticket counter.

Also listed with TC Comedy Night.

Droll witticisms performed for the entertainment of people seated in the dark.
