Doing comedy is brave. And it’s also very hard. If you’re good at it, people laugh. If you’re bad at it, there is weird, sweaty silence.

The Comedian Coalition is a group of six intrepid Iowa comedians who are set to descend upon The First Avenue Club this Thursday at 8 p.m. For a mere $5, it’s a sure bet that you will hear jokes about: pot, girlfriends and penises, not necessarily in that order. It’s also a sure bet that you will be entertained.

The nice thing about a show with six comedians performing is that there is a good chance that one of these gentlemen will elicit belly laughs from you and your friends. Just smile kindly at the other guys — comedy is hard.

Check out this bit from Andrew Jones performing at the Establishment Theatre in Rock Island.
