After two and a half years without live shows due to the pandemic, we are thrilled to announce that Laughing Liberally Milwaukee, a monthly progressive political comedy show featuring Milwaukee’s top liberal and progressive comedians, IS BACK! And with Wisconsin’s most embarrassing politician, Covid-denier / Capitol riot-supporter Ron Johnson, battling to keep his Senate seat, we need progressive laughs now more than ever.

Laughing Liberally Milwaukee is the local chapter of Laughing Liberally, a national organization of progressive comedians who use humor and laughter to spread understanding of liberal ideas and advance progressive values. For more information on Laughing Liberally visit

Laughing Liberally Milwaukee is hosted by comedian, cartoonist and satirist Matthew Filipowicz. Matthew’s work has been featured by CNN, NPR, PBS, HBO, BBC, the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, the Atlantic, the Nation, the London Times, Ain’t It Cool News, and the Huffington Post. Matthew also hosts the creatively titled Laughing Liberally Milwaukee Podcast. For more information about Matthew, visit

Comedians on the November 5th bill include Ton Johnson, Jen Durbent, Marcos Lara, Kaitlin McCarthy and sketch comedy troupe The Accountants Of Homeland Security.

In addition to some of the finest progressive comedians Milwaukee has to offer, each Laughing Liberally Milwaukee features a special interview with a local activist, journalist, or political figure. This month’s guest is the president and CEO of Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin, Tanya Atkinson.

Laughing Liberally Milwaukee takes place every month, with the next show occurring on Saturday, November 5th at 8pm at the CSZ Milwaukee, 420 South 1st Street, Milwaukee, WI. Admission is $8. More info and advance tickets can be purchased at
