You're Invited to Opening Night of the Minneapolis Jewish Humor Festival

You’re Invited to Opening Night of the Minneapolis Jewish Humor Festival on Saturday, January 14th at the Sabes JCC Minneapolis.

Don’t miss Opening Night of the Minneapolis Jewish Humor Festival with national act Julie Goldman and local special guest Laura Thorne at 7:30pm this Saturday at the Minneapolis JCC (4330 S. Cedar Lake Road, Mpls, MN 55416).
Help the JCC kick off the 3nd annual Minneapolis Jewish Humor Festival with “Kick-Ass Comedian” (NY Press) Julie Goldman, star of three seasons of LOGO’s Big Gay Sketch Show and winner of the 2008 NEWNOWNEXT Brink of Fame Comic Award, and the 2007 MAC Award for Best Headlining Comedian in NYC.
Julie glides effortlessly between hilarious folk singer and stand-up comedienne extraordinaire, and has been garnering massive attention around the country performing stand up in clubs and colleges, headlining various shows including appearances on Comedy Central and with Lewis Black’s Root of all Evil. She has performed at Montreal’s prestigious Just for Laughs comedy festival and on Broadway in Laughing Liberally. She also recently launched a live monthly all-female comedy line-up called Julie Goldman’s Offensive Women in LA where she has enlisted the best and most outrageous female comics in the world.
Laura Thorne began working as a comic in 2007 at the suggestion of her former boss, who upon firing her, recommended she pursue standup comedy as it seemed a better fit than the corporate world. Devastated, broke, and deeply humbled, Laura began performing standup comedy in Washington, DC and throughout the East Coast. Laura now lives in Minneapolis where she regularly performs standup and improvisational comedy for corporate events, charities, and comedy clubs. No longer devastated or broke (but still humble as her mother is her manager), Laura is a rising star on the Minneapolis comedy scene. Recommended for ages 18 and up (adult content).
