Your Weekend Guide for Things to do in Minneapolis: January 25-27
We’re really deep into winter now, Minneapolis. Sometimes, things can start to feel a little dark, dreary, and cold as we leave January behind and head our way into February. What better way to brighten up the darkest weeks of the year and warm up from the cold than with some comedy? From improv to stand-up, professional comedians to open mic opportunities, we’ve got you covered this weekend as you look to laugh your way through the Twin Cities Region.
Lorna Landvik: Party in the Rec Room at the Bryant-Lake Bowl Theater
This weekend is the second to last weekend to catch Lorna Landvik’s one-woman improvisational comedy show at the Bryant-Lake Bowl Theater. Local author, actor, and all around character Lorna Landvik is back to throw another comedy bash for Minneapolis’s enjoyment. In what has become a January tradition for many in the region, Landvik creates characters on the fly that are inspired by current events, audience members, and, yes, margaritas.
