Pay Gap Comedy

Friday, December 27

7PM Doors ✖ Hall ✖ $15-$45 ✖ 21+

Pay Gap Comedy is back with a special holiday show! Laugh off the seasonal stress & oh by golly have a holly jolly Pay Raise this year.

After a successful debut show at the Parkway Theater in Minneapolis, the Pay Gap Comedy Tour is coming to St Paul for the “best time of the year!” Or more realistically, the most stressful time of year – and for some of us, the most melancholy time of year. Whatever feelings the holiday season brings to you, consider this raunchy 21+ comedy variety show your seasonal laugh therapy. Made by women, but FOR everyone.

Why do we call it the Pay Gap? Because women still only earn 80% of what men do, and most comedy lineups are still dominated by men – enough said! This tour is our way to clap back at the pay gap one show at a time.
