A staged reading of performance poet Callie McKees first solo show. Partly sunny storytelling with a mix of clouds and potential of severe feminist storms forming in the evening.  Weather advisory in effect with possibility of damage to patriarchal power structures and unexamined family mythology. Expect hazardous and hilarious conditions on surfaces. Embark on journey with trepidation and excitement.  Such conditions have been known to trigger natural and unnatural disasters.

Full Metal Jokers presents: An Indoor Standup Comedy Showcase

Come to Pointless Brewery & Theater to see standup comedy performed on stage and to drink craft beer brewed on site!  Performers have incredibly unique material and style but all are guaranteed to get you laughing.  Beer styles vary and have included Ales, IPAs, Stouts, Wheats, Saisons, and whatever else the master brewer can dream up.

Headliner Robert Jenkins uses his unique point of view, quick wit, and disarming delivery to tell you why he's right. You'll disagree, but you'll laugh anyway.  You may recognize him on television from Foxs stand-up comedy show Laughs and in theaters from Dave Landaus Detroit-based comedy movie The King.  You may also recognize him from comedy clubs across the nation since he has opened for Hannibal Buress, Kyle Kinane, Matt Broussard, Alonzo Bodden, Red Grant, and many others. 

Roberts first comedy album is called "Achievement Unlocked" - it's available on iTunes, Amazon, xBox Music, and many other places. 


Host Felicity Blue is a physicist by day and gutter trash by night  She brings smart, raunchy, and brutally honest comedy to stages in Michigan and nationwide. When she's not coding or crying, she cohosts the Tap Room Comedy Night, a biweekly showcase in Ypsilanti, MI.

Guest star Dan Thomas comedy is a channeling of his acerbic thoughts about life that frequently interweaves high brow ideas with low brow subject matter.  He has performed at clubs across the U.S. and Canada.

The show is presented by Full Metal Jokers which started as (and still is) an outdoor comedy show that pops up around Ann Arbor and the Metro Detroit area. Pointless Brewery & Theater is known for excellent improv and brewing excellent beer.
