The Do Bar welcomes five Montana comedians for a free show on Friday
Laugh and the world laughs with you, the saying goes. On Friday, the Do Bar in Great Falls invites five comedians from across the state to spur guests into laughing at their unique brands of humor.
Comedy Night starts at 8 p.m. and is free to attend. The bar welcomes comics James Carden from Havre, Charley Macorn from Missoula, “Good Time” Charlie Mullak of Bozeman, Matthew “Cuddle Up” Kettelhake of Missoula, and Great Falls’ own Zack Jarvis.
Carden is probably the most well-known of all the comedians performing. “He Brings dark humor to the stage and is always sure to put people in awe,” Kettelhake
Kettelhake described his own act by saying, “I’ve been performing comedy all over the Pacific Northwest for five years. I was a 2014 and 2015 Montana Comedian-of-the-year finalist.”
With his high energy and stage presence, you never know what to expect.
Jarvis, who now lives in Missoula, “has become one of the best comedians in Montana after winning the 2015 Montana Comedy Competition and performing in the Big Sky Comedy Festival,” Kettelhake said. “He has crushed numerous stages across Montana with his stories of life’s mishaps and adventures.”
Mullak, he said, “is a pro who uses his storytelling abilities to bring light to the humorous aspects of life. He was the 2014 Montana Comedian-of-the-year runner-up.”
Mullak started his comedy career in Malta.
“I lived there for a total of six years and I love those folks,” he told the Phillips County News recently. “They treated me so well when I started doing radio there and they treated me even better when I came back to do comedy there. Each time, they come out and pack the house and I think they are just ready to laugh when we get there.”
Finally, Kettelhake said of Macorn, “He is an up-and-comer based in Missoula. He’s quickly made a name for himself with his wit and sarcasm.”
The Missoula Independent described Macorn’s act, saying, “Whether onstage or in casual conversation, Macorn comes across as easygoing and amiable, sharing outlandish yet relatable bits about life, love and what it’s like to be dumped by your boyfriend while eating dinner at China Buffet.”
The five comedians have traveled around Montana for the past two years. Kettelhake said he and Jarvis try to perform in Great Falls every three to four months.
