Comedy Corner Underground
Comedy Corner Underground is ground zero for the coolest shit happening in Twin Cities standup comedy. The only nonprofit, comic-run room in Minnesota is actually in the basement of Seven Corners tavern Corner Bar, but its spirited, DIY ethos sets it apart from the flat-screens and high-fives upstairs. "Just pretend you're being super daring and going to a speakeasy or something," CCU explains on its website. Once underground, you'll discover the most inventive hahas and make-'em-ups in town, including comedy melee Joke Fight, the women-produced showcase PSSY CTRL, and even national headliners like Josh Gondelman and Shane Mauss. Launched in 2008, CCU serves as the edgier little brother to Acme Comedy Co., providing an inclusive, smartly run outlet for rising talent to take chances and win laughs.
