What would it be like to hear comedy from George Washington, Genghis Khan or Ramses The Great? 

Mojo Dojo Comedy is proud to welcome back History Shmistory to Milwaukee. Time-traveling host Christian Lawrence (Bare Knuckle Comedy) pulls historical figures out of the past and hand them a microphone to entertain you with a unique standup set. 

This novel take on standup & absurd costume pageant has entertained fans around the world in St. Louis, Chicago, San Francisco, and London!

You'll also see hilarious longform improv from BUSY BAR, the show that answers that eternal question: what happens when two strangers are forced to make small talk at a very busy bar? 

When it's improv comedy verterans Vince Figueroa and Lee Rowley, the answer is hilarity! With the help of busy bartender James Boland, the pair weave together a strange, surreal, and often surprising one-act story that you'll never forget!

It all takes place at Urban Harvest Brewing Company, where they brew hand-crafted ales and lagers in small batches several times a week. This creates a versatile line-up of beers to choose from, as well as adventurous seasonal and specialty brews. 

Enjoy a pint or two before, during and after the show!
