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 comedians tackle subjects like dating, weight control, skateboarding and genitalia, all from a feminine—though not traditionally ladylike—perspective.
