Ok, look. We've run into an issue this year. We've got so many great comedians, needed more shows to fit them all on. We'll be damned if we're about to try and contain all of this at one venue. The 10,000 Laughs Comedy Festival is proud to present: "Also Opening Night". The show that's the start of a festival, that's so big, can't contain it at just one venue. 

While this show might have a different host, set of performers, and headliner (the indelible Ahmed Bharoocha!), and also be at a venue across town from the other. We'd like to assure you, it's the same show. Just somewhere else.

Sure, everyone expects airplane pilots to be drunk or high, but standup comedians?? 10,000 Laughs brings you SOBER/NOT SOBER, a delightful trip (maybe literally) with comics through the world of performing under the influence.
 
Comics perform a short set sober, leave the showroom, and return later to perform the same set completely, off-their-ass not-sober. How will they get not-sober? We have no idea...

You're not a real Minnesotan until you've said, “Um, Bob Dylan actually grew up in Hibbing, not Duluth." A hard laugh's a-gonna fall at the TANGLED UP IN JOKES standup comedy showcase, and many Tinder dates will be revisited.

We won't make comics talk in a high, raspy voice, but we will make lots of jokes when two blonde people perform in a row. Don't think twice, just buy tickets.

**This is the only show write up with a disclaimer as the write up is very fitting for the show**

George Carlin once said there are no bad words, only bad thoughts and intentions…fuck that. We know a lot of bad fucking words, and we're not afraid to use them under certain, controlled conditions.

The 10,000 Laughs Comedy Festival proudly presents – well, presents, anyway – THE DIRTY SHOW, 90 minutes of bad words and dirty thoughts. If you're the type of person who's offended by so-called dirty words, you quit reading this two fucks ago. If you're still with us, then this show is for you. And by all means; bring your grandma, too! Old ladies love this shit!
