SPECIAL PRESENTATION: NO COUPONS, DISCOUNTS, OR PASSES ACCEPTED
The Minnesota comedy scene has taken a blow recently as one of our dear friends, Kate Urquhart, fights a tough battle with cancer. Join us January 22 at 7:30 PM for the Hit or Miss Tuesday | Special Presentation Benefit Show for Kate and her partner Barb. If you know them, you know how wonderful they are as people. If you don't, please come help raise money for two wonderful women.
