Rick Katschke builds an audience

With an audio podcast called “Host and Guest,” a monthly improv show at the Alchemist Theatre and a recent book release, Rick Katschke seems like he would need to be older than 24. But this funny youngster is already deepening his niche in the Milwaukee comedy scene. What started as a joke quickly exploded into a full-blown dream come true...

Weier Not Amused

Hey Becky, it’s your birthday. Yay! Congratulations lady friend. You are 27 today. Oh my God, you are like so old. Jk. Lol. But, seriously. It’s your day. You call the shots. Whatever you want to do, it will happen. If you want to go out for a fancy dinner at a restaurant way out of my price range, and then insist...

Weier Not Amused

For those freaks in the world who are actually athletically talented, sports injuries are a common occurrence. If you get on the field, you are going to get hurt. There’s no crying in baseball. But for the rest of the population who would rather roll off the couch to get another beer instead of wearing...

March 18, 2010

I don’t ask a lot out of life. I really don’t. Sure I’m a broke college kid on the brink of graduation where I will receive my overpriced degree in English Professional Writing and be thrown in the scary world of loans and babies, but I’m getting by. Sometimes I think about how nice it would be to drive something other than...

Weier Not Amused

Sooooooo…yeah. What’s up? Still dead? I figured so much. I’m doing well, thanks for asking. I don’t really know if you know what’s going on down here, but everybody just loves, loves, loves you. Did you know we read your books for literature classes in universities worldwide? Yes. They stuff a whole mess of crazy college kids in a smelly room and say...

Comedy Review

Not since 1992 has Milwaukee had the pleasure of hosting comedian Patton Oswalt. His recent performance at the Pabst Theater on February 20 was far from his visit to Sir Laughs-A-Lot, a “comedy club” under the stairs of a hotel. Never heard of Patton Oswalt? Not for long...

Weier Not Amused

The O’Brien vs. Leno debacle isn’t a petty Hollywood divorce where the media demands we pick a side and wear a shirt with our favorite “team.” No. This is serious. We have lost our great leader in late night, our commander in cheap jokes about why politicians are ridiculously similar to horny, drunk teenagers...
