Laughing Mater January Comedy Showcase 2019

Stand Up Comedy

Some say laughter is the best medicine and they’re not wrong. They’re not 100% right, but also not wrong. This is our last show in Alma Mater’s Honey Cafe. Starting in February, we move the cheer to Fawcett Hall. But even in the new venue on every third Friday, you can come get the best and only medicine we are technically allowed to prescribe: laughter. Each month, we strive to bring you some of the best travelling and local comedians this world has to offer, all for the low price of $5. And while you’re enjoying our finely curated line-up, you can also caffeinate or inebriate with the hand-picked espresso, well brewed beer or expertly sourced wine Honey has to offer. Our glorious line-up for the month is: Host: Erin Crouch. Guests: Whitney Streed. Katie Nguyen. Nariko Ott. Doors at 8 / Show at 8:30pm. $5. 18+. What more could you want?
