Headliner Christopher Schmidt is a devout joke writer who never resists an opportunity to play with words, Christopher Schmidt can often be found loitering at the intersection of Cleverness St. and Stupidity Ave. With a midwestern charm painfully acquired through years of social cue mimicry, Chris delivers absurdly twisted narratives about his experiences as a professional educator and obsessive wrestling fan; this is the closest he’s ever come to using his creative writing degree. Mr. Schmidt is the weekly host of Milwaukee’s long running Duck and Cover Comedy Hour, producer of the StandPoint comedy showcase, and has opened for comics such as Nick Vatterott and Ben Kronberg.
