11AM - State Street Pub - $5
Yuck Fest is so excited to bring our favorite, wild Cincinnati show to Indianapolis, BuzzMania! This will be a special brunch time show at SSP.
Unscripted comedy. Pre-Determined devastation. This Battle Royale of comedy was born of a desire to get stand up comedians out of their comfort zone and set it to the tone of a pro wrestling promotion. The Trash Talking Bad Boys themselves Josh O’Neill and John Schroeck pull out all the stops by robbing stand-up comics of the one thing they thrive on – tried and true material. Each comic is forced to riff on a topic they’ve never seen before, and if they aren’t funny enough to please their merciless comedy overlords, a buzzer sounds to audibly signal their disappointment. At BuzzMania, no ego is left unscathed. Come get Buzzed!

If Dolly Parton & Flight of the Conchords got drunk and had a baby, you'd get the hilariously irreverent musical comedy duo Reformed Whores!

Most recently their show GRAND OLE CUNTRY, which premiered in August 2017 at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, was hailed by the press as "A magnificently bawdy celebration of female sexuality” and "Genuinely endearing and unflinchingly upbeat."
