Hi, Dan Potacke here! It's Thanksgiving time now! Have a warm holiday celebration with your truest family... the random people who show up at The Dan Potacke Show! That's right, Nov. 23rd is the Dan Potacke Thanksgiving Special!!!
We'll have turkey! And tofu-based turkey substitutes!
Joining me for my Thanksgiving celebration will be Jay Moran. Jay is a veteran of the Madison music and comedy scene with a resume that makes other guitar-strummers and joke chuckers blush. On the music side, he's been involved in such bands as: O'bros, Emmettville, Know-It-All Boyfriends and he currently rocks Genna's every other Thursday along with Biff Blumfumgagne from the Gomers. On the comedy side, Jay has been in legendary Madison sketch group, The Prom Committee, and now is in Full Nelson Reilly, Full Nelson Reilly performs on the opposite Thursday's at Genna's. IF YOU GO TO GENNA'S ON THURSDAY, YOU WILL SEE JAY MORAN PERFORM EITHER COMEDY OR MUSIC!
Also, my mom is back! Yay! She will give me an update on the last several months of her life since she last came on the show! I'm sure it will be great!
That's not all! We've got a double dose of standup with Paul Hart and Ammar Ali! Paul will bring his winning smile and charming poop jokes that drive the ladies wild! Ammar Ali is a medical student, so I'm sure he'll have lots of jokes about that. His set will be like Scrubs, except funny.
Yay! It's almost time for another Dan Potacke Show!!!
This time, Dan Potacke will welcome back Jessica Jane Witham. She's directing a play called "1SW33TR1DE" (written by Potacke emeritus guest Rob Matsushita) and she will tell Potacke about her recent experience of bringing the play "Tearoom Tango" to NYC's Fringe Fest.
Also joining Potacke on stage will be Josh Klessig, speaking about his music project: The Gentleman Loser! We'll be talking electronica as well as Josh's low self esteem, maybe Potacke can get him to change the name to Gentlemen WINNER!
Comedian Matt Sloan brings his years of experience in comedy, in both Improv (Monkey Business Institute) and filmmaking (Chad Vader), to the stage in a whole new way as he performs a set of stand-up comedy. Will it be awesome? (Spoiler Alert-IT WILL BE SUPER AWESOME!!)
All this and more, at the Frequency 121 W. Main St. on Monday Nov, 9th at 6:30 pm! NO COVER!!!!!!!!!!! Be there!

Hi, Dan Potacke here!
Did I scare you? I hope you didn't get so frightened that you had to leave the room because that means I wouldn't be able to tell you about the Dan Potacke Halloween Special on October 26th at 6:30 p.m. Halloween in October, it's like Halloween in April... except much more accurate.
Joining me this time around will be Adam and Josh from DrunkDial101. DrunkDial101 is a local talk show that combines comedy skits and interviews with notable people from around the Madison area, what a clever and original idea!
Also coming to the show is author Briane Pagel who will be onto discuss his new novel, "Eclipse." It's about an astronaut and then... um... the rest is too complicated for me to understand. Hopefully he can explain it to me at the show.
We'll also have some great stand-up comedy from Darryl Teske who enjoys swearing on live television.
Well, it's Fall now. So Fall on down to the Frequency on Monday, September 28th to see The Dan Potacke Show!
This time, Potacke welcomes the director of the new horror movie Incest Death Squad, Cory J. Udler! Dan will also chat with Musician Julian Lynch about his album Orange You Glad. Finally, comedian Joe Gilchrist will amuse the audience with good jokes, I hope their are some jokes about dogs!
As always, it all goes down at The Frequency at 121 W. Main St. The show is free and 21+. The show starts at 6:30, this is as opposed to other shows where I told you the show starts at 6:00 but it actually started at 6:30. This show is at 6:30 and starts at 6:30.
