Comedian Tim Harmston

Menomonie native Tim Harmston was only a year into his career when he won Acme Comedy Company’s 2003 Funniest Person in the Twin Cities contest. After winning, a well known headliner said to him “You’re kind of like an idiot, but with smart material.” That winning combination has led Tim to appearances on CBS’s Late Show with David Letterman, Comedy Central’s Live at Gotham, the Bob and Tom radio show, Last Comic Standing and Wisconsin Public Radio. Tim is a mainstay at the Acme Comedy Club in Minneapolis.

Admission is $20. For mature audiences ages 18 and older.
