Ok, look. We've run into an issue this year. We've got so many great comedians, we couldn’t just have one kickoff show. This year, 10,000 Laughs proudly presents ALSO OPENING NIGHT, the show that's the start of a festival so big, weccan't contain it at just one venue.

In true midwestern style, 10,000 Laughs is spreading the love and fried foods to our neighboring city of Eau Claire, WI. Eau Claire has become THE comedy sister-city to Minneapolis, attracting performers from around the country for one of the best damn comedy rooms in the Midwest.

We are pumped to join forces with Eau Claire’s Clearwater Comedy Collective to present: CassaROFL - a Minnesconsin Specialty. We're serving up the funniest comics on, well, either side of the Mississippi. (we get it should be the St. Croix, please stop messaging us, it's a joke. We know our rivers.)

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.

Bitch, this ain't no casserole. HOT DISH is a stand-up showcase that will fill you up before the long winter – save room for hearty portions from comedians from all over the country. The show is the perfectly melted, slightly crunchy cheese that ties the dish together…this twice-baked comedy extravaganza will have you coming back for seconds, and just maybe thirds.

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!

Panic! hosted by James Doyle and Dante Powell isna stand up comedy show bringing you the highs and lows of comedy as they project random topics and ideas (from the mundane "Tell Us About Your First Kiss?" to the obscure "What Would A Katt Williams Oscar Acceptance Speech Sound Like?") onto a screen for performers to make up material about on the spot. Be it stories, jokes, interpretive dances, or anything in between, the show treats the audience to a brand new experience every time, as prepared material is NOT ALLOWED!
