If you have plans Tuesday, March 14, we urge you to fake a sudden (but minor) case of kennel cough and cancel them. Better yet, invite your friends and join us at the Amsterdam Bar and Hall in St. Paul for the Canine Comedy Show.
Performers include Kevin Kling of NPR’s All Things Considered; Mary Jo Pehl, best known for her various roles on the television series Mystery Science Theater 3000; Turner Barrowman, whose sketches have been featured on Comedy Central; Colleen Kruse, storyteller, magazine columnist, and talk radio host who has appeared on Comedy Central and HBO; and MC Maggie Faris, award-winning comedian who has who has opened for greats such as Maria Bamford, Daniel Tosh, and Louis Black.
Even better news? The evening of fun benefits Pet Haven, Minnesota’s oldest foster-based animal rescue, which re-homes cats and dogs, spays and neuters to reduce overpopulation, and promotes companion animal welfare.
(Pet Haven will be bringing adoptable pups for you to love up on, but please leave your own dogs at home. You can text them during intermission.)
If last year’s event was any indication, this puppy will sell out quickly – so get your paws on tickets ASAP. Two- and four-top tickets ($60 and $120 per table, respectively) include a fun swag bag and table service; general admission attendees ($15 in advance, $20 at the door) purchase drinks and food at the bar.
