|« Dan Potacke Show... on a SATURDAY with FREE Summit Hefe Weizen!||Dan Potacke Show- May 3rd w/ MAMA's Rick Tvedt and comedian David Leon! »|
Hello everybody, it's me, Dan Potacke! In the coming week, I'm involved in no less than three shows! You should check some or all of them out.
Saturday, May 22nd - 8 PM - Majestic Theatre. Paul F Tompkins w/ Alan Talaga and Sean Moore.
Tired of booking shows around the country, acclaimed comedian Paul F Tompkins has decided to let his fans book his shows instead. After 300 fans joined a Facebook group asking Paul to come to Toronto, Tompkins booked a show there and called it one of his all-time favorite experiences. Now Paul has challenged other cities to get 300 fans together to demand a show. Madison is a city with a great comedy tradition as well as a place that loves a challenge, so Wisconsinites quickly joined formed their Tompkins Facebook group, hit the magic 300 number, and now Paul F Tompkins is coming to the Majestic!
Local comics Alan Talaga and Sean Moore will each perform short sets before Tompkins tears down the house at Majestic.
Tickets are $18 in advance $20 day of show. Tickets can be purchased online at majesticmadison.com, the Majestic box-office, or at the Majestic ticketing locations: Willy Street Co-Op and Context clothing.This show is ALL AGES.
Tickets are going quick. Buy yours now to make sure you can get in! https://www.etix.com/ticket/servlet/onlineSale?action=selectPerformance&cobrand=majesticmadison&performance_id=1222260

Monday, May 24th - 6:30 PM - The Frequency - The Dan Potacke Show with journalist Kristin Czubkowski and comedian Stefan Davis.
Now, my occasional associate Alan Talaga is sponsoring and putting on Paul F Tompkins show here in Madison on May 22nd. Now he's not the brightest bulb in the world, but the dumbest thing he could try to do would be to go straight from that Tompkins show to writing and producing a Potacke show less than 48 hours later. It's a good thing we are two entirely different people.
While Alan is putting on that other show, I'll be getting ready to interview journalist Kristin Czubkowski from The Capitol Times. We will discuss the challenges and opportunities presented by new media, the ongoing Edgewater debate that won't die, and her work on a food blog.
Comedian Stefan Davis is also sure to please, he hosts a monthly stand-up show at the Argus that is quickly becoming one of the hottest comedy shows in town.
As always with my Monday Potacke Shows, there is NO COVER but you must be 21+ to attend!
Thursday, May 27th - 7:30 pm - The Project Lodge - Mary Mack's Delayed Comedy CD Release Show w/ Dan Potacke and Tim Harmston.
Folk humorist Mary Mack spends half her time convincing her Minnesotan mother it’s okay for her daughter to be a comedian and the other half touring the country in her sweet, 400 dollar Dodge Neon--affectionately referred to as “Street Heat.”
Mack started her career in Nashville, and now splits her time between Los Angeles and Minneapolis, where she recorded her live album "Either You Wake Up or you Don't" at her home club Acme Comedy Company.
Opening for Mary Mack will be Dan Potacke who will give a 15-minute multimedia presentation of hilarity. If you work Monday nights this is the perfect chance to see what you've been missing from The Dan Potacke Show.
The show starts at 7:30pm, $10/$8 w/ Student ID.
Here's a short set from the hilarious Ms. Mack.
