I know here at the Riff our favorite shows are of the rock variety, but I think we can all agree the next best thing would be a comedy show, right? Stand-up comedy as long been a passion of mine, both to watch and perform. It started at a young age when my family and I saw Steven Wright at Meadowbrook many moons ago, and the love for the art form has only intensified since.
Steven may not be coming to Michigan this year, but some of my other favorite comedians are! Some of these may be unfamiliar to you while others may be a blast from the past that you totally forgot about. Here are five must-see stand-up comedians coming to Michigan in 2023. Some are coming to Detroit, some will be going to Pontiac, a few will require trips to Grand Rapids, and hey, one is even going to be in Warren. Let’s get to the list.
