Planning to hide at home from the cold this weekend? Well, why not hide at the Phoenix Theater in Minneapolis instead?
The Uptown venue is hosting Fearless Comedy Productions' 5th annual "Die Laughing" comedy marathon, spanning 50 hours of nonstop amusement.
"Die Laughing V: The Comedy Strikes Back" kicks off at 7 p.m. Friday evening and lasts until 9 p.m. Sunday.
The event typically raises half of Fearless' funding for the year, with attendees giving a suggested donation of $20 and can then buy "punishments and rewards" for participants starting at low as $5.
As you can imagine, it's a terrific undertaking for performers, whose acts include stand-up, improv, musical acts, joke-offs, dance, live podcast recordings and even educational content.
You can check out the full schedule here – which includes "Drunk Story Time" at 3:30 a.m. on Saturday and a performance by Mystery Science Theater 3000's Mary Jo Pehl at 7:30 p.m. the same day.
Many of the Fearless members taking part stay on site throughout the duration of the show, sleeping on cots and ordering food in.
They also volunteer for the operational side, checking in outside performances, running a silent auction and administering the rewards and punishments bought by audience members.
If you're unable to make the show, the company will be streaming the entire 50 hours on this website, with viewers able to make donations from home.
