    best place pabst milwaukee events milwaukey to the cityA not so late night show featuring talent from all across Cream City - Hosted by Sam Barone!


    Sam Barone (8 year standup comic, 6 year milwaukee citizen) wanted to create a show that celebrates the things he loves most about this city; its people. Not a single one of us takes this city for granted, and that’s a reason to show off who we are. Each show will have a standup comedian, local business owner, and musician/band as guests. We’ll see their latest jokes, leading inspirations, and the passion that drives each and every one of them.

     

    Join Milwaukey to The City with Sam the Reporter to enjoy old faces you might recognize while meeting new ones you hope to become familiar with.
