Cameron Little
Larry Bloom
Madeleine Russell
Soli Santos
and more special guests TBA!

Tickets are $10 at the door. The Crowd accepts cash, card and Venmo. Free sparkling water while supplies last.

THE HEADLINER

Kristin Lytie has performed stand up comedy in basements, laundromats, and dive bars all across the country. She cut her teeth in the Chicago comedy scene and was even named a “Comic to See” by the Chicago Tribune. An eternal optimist, she has worked in progressive politics for the past ten years as a community and union organizer. That passion has brought her back to Green Bay, Wisconsin to organize in the deep red of her home.

Kristin has opened for Eddie Pepitone, Eliza Skinner, and has performed in the Altercation Comedy Festival (Austin, TX), Beast Village Comedy Festival (Des Moines, IA), Milwaukee Comedy Festival, Madison Comedy Week, Bird City Comedy Festival (Phoenix, AZ), Let’s Fest (Fort Wayne, IN), Whiskey Bear Comedy Festival (Columbus, OH), Cream City Comedy Festival (Milwaukee, WI), Floodwater Comedy Festival (Iowa City, IA) and more.

She hosts a monthly show called Fan Club Comedy to bring unique touring comics to NE Wisconsin. Kristin has also funneled her love of horror movies into a podcast called Bloody Mary Podcast which discusses horror movies through a lens of sexuality and feminism. Guests have included professors, comics, and even a dominatrix!

THE DETAILS

Out of respect for the performers, please refrain from bringing alcohol or drugs into the theater. Guests who break this simple rule will be asked to leave.

Doors open around 9:45 for the 10 p.m. show. Seating is general admission. Free sparkling water while supplies last.
