Hardcore Comedy Show
Tonight @ The Cactus Club, 9 p.m.
A response to the traditionally male-dominated field of stand-up comedy, the Hardcore Comedy Show unites six of Milwaukee’s burgeoning female comedians—grrrl comedians?—in one of the city’s least likely comedy venues: the Cactus Club’s grimy back room, long the territory of punk-rock concerts. The material is unapologetically crass, so expect an angrier, more explicit and much, much funnier version of “The Vagina Monologues.”
