Kamikaze Comedy

Kamikaze Comedy Logo

Kamikaze Comedy is an opportunity for comedians of all skill and experience levels to “take the leap” and try telling their jokes through a microphone to a live audience.

The jokes start flying at 7:30p on the 1st and 3rd (and 5th when possible) Tuesday of every month at the Grand Traverse Distillery Tasting Room. This is a FREE open mic and is hosted by Matthew Zerilli (with the occasional special guest)

Registration is announced the last week of each month for the following month. Submit requests to kamikazecomedytc@gmail.com, time is not guaranteed.

Falling Down Stairs Productions


We are a group who does sketch comedy and puts on stand up comedy shows across Northern Michigan!

Named for an event when one of the members humorously toppled down a set of stairs, Falling Down Stairs Productions is a company founded on friendship and family. The skits they produce demonstrate the good-natured razzing and quick-witted interaction of their real-life selves.

FDSP is proud support the efforts of numerous charities, both local and nationwide. They want to make the world a better place — one laugh at a time!


Good on Paper

Good on Paper

The Traverse City area’s ONLY professional improv comedy troupe, creating comedy scenes based entirely from audience suggestions. Highly energetic, completely interactive.

“Good on Paper” Improv was assembled in 2010 by a group of performers looking to bring “Big City” improvised comedy to the Traverse City area. The show it put together is like the show-off younger sibling of Second City, ImprovOlympic, and The Groundlings. Good on Paper creates improvised comedy experiences for groups of any size all based on audience suggestions. No two shows are ever the same.
