HO! HO! It's the most wonderful time of the year! It's time for the 4th Annual Dan Potacke Show Holiday Special!
Joining me this time will be... you! As we've done for the last couple holiday shows, we don't book a guest. It's an all comedy show and everyone who wants to be in it gets a part.
Do you want to be in a skit? Put a comment on the bottom of this article by 12/10/12 and you will be in a skit! Note: sketches may not be written until Thursday morning.
Do you want to do something else like write a skit, sing a Christmas song or something I'm not thinking of? Send me a message and you'll probably get to do it!
We'll also have stand-up from Santa Claus! That's right! THE SANTA CLAUS!
So I will see you on December 13th for the Dan Potacke Holiday Special! It's at The Frequency at 7 PM. No cover!
On the November 29th edition of The Dan Potacke Show, local improv artist Ben Taylor stopped by to share the news that he had just won the Powerball jackpot and was now super rich. He also started acting like a jerk. For your pleasure, here is the audio from that event.
It's after Thanksgiving but a bit too early for a Christmas show... so it's The Dan Potacke "Rare-Occasion-When-I-Can't-Think-Of-A-Reason-For-It-To-Be-A-Special" Special.
Joining us this time will be Tom Teslik. Tom is a charming young man who has been in like 8 billion bands including Pushmi-Pullyu. He's also recently returned from a nationwide tour and his beard is huge now! We'll talk about all of those things!
We'll also have stand-up from Monica Allen. She likes old video games. So if you are itching to have a conversation about The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask, she's got your back.
By Thursday, November 8th, we will have probably found out who won the Presidential Election. Or, should the election be unresolved, we'll be prepping for an inevitable civil war. No matter the outcome, The Dan Potacke Show will be there to provide somewhat topical jokes!
Joining me for this special occasion will be a panel of Madison political experts! Confirmed panelists include: NARAL-Wisconsin Executive Director & Dane County Board Supervisor Jenni Dye, Dane 101's Jesse Russell, & WTDY reporter Dylan Brogan. LOOK, I'VE GOT A PANEL, IT'S LIKE A FANCY SHOW!
We'll also have stand-up comedy from Nick Smith. Nick is another entrant into already crowded market of chubby bearded comedians in Madison. I must eliminate him... when the time is right. But for now, he'll be telling jokes for us all to enjoy!
We'll celebrate together. Or we'll cry together. More than likely, it will be a combination of the two.
Did I scare you? If so, sorry. But it's almost Halloween time! Which means it's time for The Dan Potacke Show Halloween Special.
My ghost... I mean guest, will be a representative from the ACL-BOO, by that, I mean the ACLU. Stacy Harbaugh, the Communications Director for the American Civil Liberties Union of Wisconsin, will sit down and discuss voting rights as we get ready to head off to the voting BOOth. Our chat should make for a great interBOO.
We will also have stand-up from Jeffery Schultz. WHO MAY BE A VAMPIRE! I've only seen him at night, which is the predominant time for vampires! But comedy shows are almost exclusively at night so I'll admit that this is not definitive evidence.
We'll also have the special yearly appearance of the HolloWheel of Fangtasticnastyness. We're back at The Frequency on Thursday, 10/25/12 at 7:00 PM.
IF YOU WEAR A COSTUME, YOU GET INTO THE SHOW FOR FREE!*
*You also get in free without a costume.
