A fun night of stand-up comedy is happening in Bismarck in October.

If you are a lover of standup comedy, you will probably be interested to hear about this rare type of event coming to Bismarck in October. Coming up on Friday, October 29, Sixteen03 Main Events is having a comedy show where the community can come out to laugh with Minnesota-based comedians Tobi Shammu, Ryan Kahl, and Nate Abshire.


WHAT: Comedy Show

WHEN: Friday, October 29, 2021 at 7:00 PM

WHERE: 1603 E Main Ave, Bismarck


It is a rare opportunity to get to see a good comedy show in North Dakota.

If you have never seen stand-up comedy live, I highly recommend taking in a show. I have always been obsessed with shows like concerts and plays, but live stand-up comedy is truly my favorite type of show. I had to learn that when I lived in Denver, because, unfortunately, living in North Dakota for the first 23 years of my life did not afford me much opportunity to take in a comedy show.

It was not until I got out of North Dakota that I realized my obsession for live stand-up comedy. I have seen shows from some comedy icons - Adam Sandler, David Spade, Norm MacDonald, Pauly Shore, Roseann Barr, and Jim Gaffigan to name a few of my favorites. And at many of those shows, I saw incredible local comedians. Every show I have seen has been a unique and hilarious comedy event.

Since stand-up comedy is not like a typical show or event, here are a couple of personal tips for enjoying live stand-up:

  • If you are sitting close and appear to be disinterested or confused, prepare for the possibility of getting roasted.
  • If you want to heckle the entertainment, prepare for the possibility of getting roasted.
