Here’s what to expect:
Arrive at 9:00 PM to catch Tokens R' Us. This panel-style comedy show brings together ethnically diverse comedians of color to play games and tell stories about what it means to be “the only one” who looks like them in a room. Hopefully, everyone leaves the show more culturally aware.
Stay for a live music performance. There’s an all-new guest every time!
Then hang out for a stand-up comedy hour called Universally Funny. See the comedians from the Tokens R' Us panel PLUS enjoy a wide range of culturally diverse comedians—both local and out-of-town.
