8PM Puterbaugh Sisters opening for Beth Stelling
This hour of comedy features some incredibly unique comedians. The Puterbaugh Sisters (Tiffany @puterbaughs & Danielle @dputerbaugh) can’t properly be described, but alt-vaudeville-sex kittens is close. Beth Stelling @bethstelling is one of the best human beings in comedy and recently made her TV debut on CONAN! They hosted a variety show (Entertaining Julia) together in Chicago for 6 years that’s basically a weekly ingenuity fest unto itself.

Awkward Sex Show Podcast with Carey Callahan @careycallahan
Each episode we’ll discuss another aspect of this weird uncomfortable nerve-wracking thing we call the Human Sexual Experience. 30% comedy, 30% the kind of therapy you get when you go to the bar with your best friend, and 40% telling embarrassing stories in front of strangers, we only want to make sure all you weirdos understand we’re not alone in being seriously fucking confused by all of this shit.
Episode Topic: Sexuality through comedy, with a panel of performers from the Festival. Guest co-host Drew Michael @drewmcomedy
