The Goodnight Milwaukee Show
161 W. Wisconsin Ave., lower level, Milwaukee, WI, 53203
Local stand-ups Jake Kornely and Tyler Menz arrived at a unique concept for their comedy show. In an affectionate tribute to the late-night programs of David Letterman and Conan O’Brien, they play competing talk-show hosts forced to host a show together in The Goodnight Milwaukee Show. Each installment features interviews with lively guests (usually very funny local comedians), fittingly cheesy monologues and unpredictable games, all of which take good advantage of the chemistry and comic tension between the reluctant co-hosts. The venue is fittingly unique, too: It’s the Underground Collaborative’s Arcade Theatre, below the Shops of Grand Avenue.
