The Wait Wait Stand-Up Tour

20 W Patrick St

It’s the Wait Wait Stand-Up Tour — a night of stand-up-comedy featuring some of Wait, Wait…Don’t Tell Me’s funniest panelists.

Wait, Wait’s panelists are incredible — some of the most hilarious and insightful people in the country. You’ve heard them answering questions on Wait, Wait—subject to FCC limitations. Here’s a chance to enjoy a full evening of their unfiltered stand-up comedy.

Your host is veteran stand-up and Wait, Wait regular, Alonzo Bodden. Joining him in Frederick, MD are Zainab Johnson, Mo Rocca, and Emmy Blotnick!

There never seems to be enough time on the weekly radio show to really get to know our incredibly talented and funny panelists. So, we’re taking them on tour and hope to see you there!

Queer Open Mic Night

Saturday, June 17, 6pm-8pm

526 N Market St

As part of Frederick Pride 2023, we’re collaborating with Olde Mother Brewing to provide a queer space for queer art. Register to share your poem, story, music, or other spoken or musical creation. There is a spot in the registration form to indicate the type of performance you plan to share. Here are the rules:

  • There is no cost cost participate, and we are asking for a $20 refundable reservation fee because of the number of no-shows and cancellations last year.
  • There is no age limit. Performers can be any age.
  • Individuals or groups can register.
  • Supplied technology is a single microphone and speaker. We cannot supply additional technology.
  • If you need music played as part of your performance, you must bring the music, a means to play / amplify the music (e.g., boom box, etc.), and set this up.
  • Performers must pre-register to perform. Walk-in performances will not be allowed.
  • Each performance time is limited to 5 minutes. When you register, you agree to this format / duration. You can only register for one 5-minute set unless the Emcee approves your registering for a second set.

The event’s Emcee will strive to honor the time slot you register for and reserves the right to change the order of performances based on what else is taking place that evening.

This is a very exciting addition to Frederick’s arts community! Register and share your gifts with the broader queer and ally community!
