Brooks Wheelan (multiple showtimes)


  • Comedy Club on State 202 State Street Madison, WI, 53703 United States (map)

We recently included Brooks Wheelan in an episode of our podcast that rounded up some of the national comedians who have made a point of recording stand-up albums in Madison and he’s back at the Comedy Club on State all weekend. He's still probably best-known for being a one-season-and-done cast member on Saturday Night Live back in 2013, but Wheelan’s talent as a stand up easily transcends that dubious honor. His material might lean towards the bro-y end of the comedy spectrum, but there’s just enough introspection in there to win over any room. The heart and soul of seeing him live, though, comes from the possibility of things going gloriously off the rails at any moment, as you can see in a couple recent morning-show clips, exhibit A and exhibit B. Adam Burke features, and Omar Nava hosts. Multiple showtimes, go here for the full schedule and tickets. —Chris Lay
