Stand Up Comedy Open Mic

August 01, 2014


Description
What is a comedy open mic, you say? What are ya, some kinda wingnut? This is your opportunity to test out some comedy material on mic, on stage, in front of a room of your peers. Seasoned veterans of comedy and pudgy babyfat greenie newbs to the scene can all feel comfortable in Oshkosh's premiere venue for all things comedy...The Backlot Comedy House! Join us at the Backlot Comedy House and get your name on the coveted list. Once on the list, you can both max and/or relax until your name is likely mispronounced by the host of the evening, then it is your chance to drop five minutes of original comedy on the eager waiting ears of the other comics and fans of comedy in the room. Five minutes. YA HEAR ME?! At the four minute mark, you'll get a light that is flashed at you, commonly known as "the light" (because it's a light), but I don't want you to start screaming and assume that the grim reaper has come to harvest your soul. I assure you that it's just a flashlight to alert you to the fact that you have told four minutes worth of jokes and that you have one minute remaining. Then at five minutes the light will once again flash at you and you'll know that your time has come to step back down into the audience and resume maxing and/or relaxing. Don't do comedy - come watch! It's FREE!

Waterfest

August 21, 2014


Description
Waterfest is a Celebration of The Quality of Life we enjoy here in the Fox Valley Area. The name was chosen to draw attention to our most valuable, unique and recognizable resource, our waterways. The event takes place on the shores of the historic Fox River in Downtown Oshkosh. Some of the greatest musicians of our time perform in an intimate and accessible venue. The food generally consists of Wisconsin's best brats and burgers served by anyone of a dozen or so community volunteer organizations.

Depending on the weather and the artists strength of appeal anywhere from 2,500 to 7,500 visitors may be in attendance for any given evening. We generally enjoy about 60 to 70,000 guests during the entire 13 evenings of entertainment. The Oshkosh downtown eateries and clubs bustle before and after the event so come early, stay late, or both! The park opens at 6PM most nights and at 5PM on a few others. Music generally starts when the gates open and never runs past 11:00PM. Waterfest beats summer re-runs, keeps us outside and allows us home in time for the nightly news.

The Waterfest schedule is as follows:
June 19-Vic Ferrari
June 26-Los Lonely Boys
July 17-Under the Sun Tour
July 24-Sister Hazel
July 25-Gin Blossoms
