RACINE — If it’s laughter you’re after, the Racine Theatre Guild’s Comedy Tonight Series returns at 7 p.m. on Saturday, October 7.
The series opener, on the RTG stage, 2519 Northwestern Ave., features The Rob Haze of Comedy and featured entertainer Skyler Higley.
Haze, a comedian from Atlanta, is a writer/performer on “Sherman’s Showcase” on IFC. He was on the “Sneaker Sketch” show “Sneak This” on B/R Kicks. He was on the 9th season of Last Comic Standing and has a stand-up album called “Haze-o-pedia.”
Other stand-up comedy credits for Haze include “The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon,” “The Late Late Show,” “Comedy Central,” and “Viceland.” What began as making funny poems at college poetry nights, Haze started performing stand-up while studying political science in college and prides himself on bringing people together rather than tearing them apart. His podcast, called “The Inconsistent Podcast with Rob Haze,” is available everywhere.
Skyler Higley’s razor-sharp writing has been honed at “ClickHole” and the “New Yorker,” as well as staff writing at “The Onion” and “CONAN.” He was named one of New York Comedy Festival’s “Comics To Watch” in 2019, bringing a comedic style described by his former boss Conan O’Brien as “delightfully bizarre and undeniably hilarious.”
Individual tickets for all Comedy Tonight shows are $18 for adults, $16 for seniors (age 62+) and $13 for students (age 21 and under). Season tickets are $60 for adults, $55 for seniors and $40 for students.
Comedy Tonight Series tickets are now on sale at the RTG box office, 2519 Northwestern Ave., from 12 to 6 p.m. weekdays and 90 minutes prior to each performance. Ticket orders are also available by calling 262-633-4218 or at www.racinetheatre.org.
