Truth in Comedy, or TiC for short, is a storytelling, stand-up comedy and art show where humanity is the muse. It’s a raw and beautiful experience. Three individuals will tell a very personal story from their life, aka their truth, where they will be very open, honest, and vulnerable.
Afterwards, a comedian will perform a set inspired by the story. At the end of the night, an artist will present a triptych they created inspired by the stories as well. It’s a unique experience to see why no matter what humans go through, they can always find something to smile or laugh about.

Time: 7:30 – 9:30 p.m.
Location: MTH Second Stage in Crown Center

The Rude Revue and Burly Q is a modern vaudeville show featuring burlesque and variety acts of all kinds. Every performance is different and can be tailored to a specific venue or audience. From classic to cosplay and fantastic to freaky, the Rude Revue is sure to wow you. Beautiful ladies, clowns, flow artists, sideshow acts, comedians, jugglers, crooners, and more!
This is not your Grandma’s night out (unless your Grandma is awesome). The Rude Revue and Burly Q has been known to spontaneously combust children and make adults 18 and over very happy. These two symptoms are unrelated—but just to be safe, please leave the kiddos at home.
