Montgomery Parks with more stand-up shows in 2024.

Get ready to laugh with Montgomery Parks in 2024 with three outdoor, stand-up comedy specials brought to you by Improbable Comedy. Bring along your friends and a blanket, set up a picnic, and direct your attention to the stage for a show filled with comedic talent. During the first hour of the events, get your spot on the lawn and grab a beverage and bite to eat from the vendors on-site. Then, settle in as Improbable Comedy takes the stage to present a lineup of comedians. Each show consists of several comics doing ten to twelve-minute sets.

All shows are intended for mature audiences ages 17 and up and are not recommended for viewers under 17. Viewer discretion is advised.

ASL Interpretation will be provided by Montgomery Park’s Program Access.  Check out details about each of the upcoming shows below.
