Standup is alive and well in the Twin Cities. With new clubs opening recently, the area now has no fewer than five venues supporting the comedic arts and bringing in some of the country's top acts. Acme Comedy Co., however, is the stage that stands apart from all others. By packing its schedule each month with hilarious headliners, both rising young comedians and proven vets, Acme has made itself one of the must-stops for any serious comic touring the Midwest. Big names like Chad Daniels, Doug Benson, Todd Glass, Maria Bamford, and Bobcat Goldthwait pack the house on a weekly basis along with lesser-known and local comics.
