This weekend, The Steamroller is presenting a pair of very exciting events: A semi-formal fundraiser for The Comedy Exposition and A Jangleheart Circus at Goofballs United on Friday, and the second and final (for a while) edition of Seven Minutes in Purgatory, a science experiment of a comedy show hosted by Ian Abramson.
This confluence of two extremely high quality comedy shows in one weekend will be known from now on as The first annual STEAMKEND.
More info on both shows below!

Seven Minutes in Purgatory 2: Comic Sans
We had such a nice time last month that we're doing it again, ONCE MORE, on Saturday, June 21st, then not again for quite a while.
At Seven Minutes in Purgatory, comedians will be tasked with doing a set alone in a room, with the audience watching via live stream in another room.
Come watch comics handpicked by The Steamroller and Ian Abramson do their best to be funny and have no idea if it's working.
With livestreamed standup from: Adam Burke, Stephanie Hasz, Jeff Steinbrunner, Tim Barnes. Nick Rouley, Alex Kumin, J. Michael Osborne, and more?
If a comedian performs in the woods, and the only people that can hear it are miles away, is it a performance?
Come find out.
Saturday, June 21st 10:30pm @ The Upstairs Gallery. Donations accepted. BYOB.
