“Over the past decade, we have witnessed an explosion in our comedy scene,” said Matt Kemple, festival Founder and Producer, “so it would only make sense for us to partner with a Milwaukee landmark such as the Turner Hall to celebrate our 10 Years of Laughs. I couldn’t be prouder!”

Founded in 2005 as the Sketch and Improv Comedy Festival, the MCF has featured comedians from across the country, as well as Canada. Past performers have appeared on Late Show with David Letterman, Comedy Central, television and movies. The Milwaukee Comedy Showcase focuses on local performers, while the Teen Comedy Show features Wisconsin area high school students.
