Amanda Jacobsen

Amanda Jacobsen

Amanda is the cohost of true crime comedy podcast Wine & Crime, as well as a veteran of the hospitality industry, and as such, has contemplated committing murder many, many times. Among her few talents is a knack for writing, comedy, and performance. As a member of “the weaker sex,” she’s thrilled to be here tonight to chat holiday hellscapes, making cents on the dollar, and the massive disappointment that is men in general.

Shannon Paul

Shannon Paul

A self-labeled Geek, Miss Shannan Paul brings roaring laughter to even the most curmudgeonly of crowds. Twin Cities newspaper, the City Pages says, “No matter where you’ve seen (or heard) her, you know just how great Miss Shannan is. With comedy that’s personal and relatable, she has the ability to make you feel like you’ve been friends for years, even if you’re only seeing her for the very first time.” 

Smartmouth Comedy

Smartmouth Comedy

Happy Hour is the official Smartmouth Comedy Company improv group. This female-driven improv troupe performs a genre-based montage. True to the happy hour name, their genres are associated with a drink name allowing for a fun theme throughout the show. They look forward to offering you a whole slew of cocktails this December!

Suzanne the Magician

Suzanne the Magician

People don’t like Suzanne when she performs, they love her. When she takes the stage, the typical persona of a magic performer is far, far away. Rather than adopt the currently-popular character of a frantic used car salesman when performing magic, Suzanne is herself: feminine, funny, wise, direct and, above all, delighted to be performing for the audience. This core positively is contagious, and it radiates from Suzanne.
