Fresh out the Bronx and live in Long Island City, Petey DeAbreu invites you to join him and three of his funniest friends as they tell jokes and rip each other to shreds. It’s like The Creek’s stage is Petey’s living room, and the audience are all his peoples. He’s got stand-up comics, sketches, characters, commercials, dudes on god mics, maybe a magician, anything could happen in Petey’s World!

Power Hour! Open Mic is brought to you by Amy Shanker, Brett Hiker, and Cameron Ford. Originating in Chicago, this mic mixes your hot new bits with some beer and piano. While you’re working on getting famous, a designated weekly “drinker” is on stage beside you working on a pitcher or 2 of beer. He or she will occasionally chime in to riff with your set. This is a fun, no-fail mic; if you drop the ball, the drinker will pick it up. And don’t worry! At the end of the mic, we’ll watch as the drinker attempts to do their set.

Bucket at 6:50

Start time: 7PM Saturdays Downstairs at Creek and the Cave

Power Hour! was created/hosted by Chris Damen with Keith Paesel, Ken Witzgall, Ashley Huck, and Cameron Ford at the Gallery Cabaret in Chicago, IL.
