Ann Arbor Comedy Showcase  

We're FINALLY open at our new location!

Closed Thanksgiving Day, November 27th!

November 26th 28th & 29th

We are excited to bring stand-up comedy back to Ann Arbor after so many months and appreciate the efforts of our new building managers to help push for us to open while construction continues on the building.  Please keep in mind that many of the shared spaces at our new location are works in progress and know that we appreciate your patience in the meantime.  The elevator will be one of the final pieces of construction and will not be completed until all of the residential space has been finalized (an additional 1-2 years we are told), which means we are not currently handicap accessible.  We apologize in advance for this inconvenience and look forward to full accessibility in the future!

So come join us at 212 S. Fourth Ave ...


It's the annual Thanksgiving Weekend visit from the sometimes whimsical, sometimes wacky, and always hysterical, Heywood Banks. You don't want to miss the return of this 'Disney Experiment Gone Bad''s a mix of original music and strange comedy!

Equal parts genius and buffoon, this songwriter-comic-singer-poet-musician has become a cult hero and a pop icon, with a show that appeals to college students, stoners, businessmen, yuppies, rednecks, punks, kids or your grandmother.  Heywood intersperses his humorous observations of life with twisted, inventive, bizarre songs, sung and played in a variety of styles, from folk, to country to rock to pop, and way beyond.

His best-known songs include:  'Wiper Blades', 'Fishin' Worms', 'I Don't Buy My Own Tires', 'The Cat Got Dead', 'Dust Mites', '18 Wheels', 'Fly's Eyes', 'Perry Had a Pimple', 'The One Eye Love', the classic... 'Toast', and find out what he did with ...'Big Butter Jesus' now that the butter has “been zapped.” 

With countless TV appearances and a myriad of radio credits including a regular stint on "The Bob and Tom Show" and "Dr. Demento," AND he was recently the MC at the Ann Arbor Folk Festival.  One of his songs was even performed on American Idol. With a bunch of CD's of his original songs, it's clear to us why he's so popular.

Heywood loves to perform live and this is your chance to see him up close and personal at the Comedy Showcase.

that kids ages 10 & up may attend the Wednesday & Friday 7pm shows with a responsible adult, and that our normal 18+ restriction will be strictly enforced at all other showtimes!
