Fools For Comedy - an April Fools Comedy Show, a Comedy On the Rox production, is set for Saturday, April 7 at 8 p.m. at Broadway Ballroom and Fat Daddy's, 115 30th Avenue East in Alexandria.

Back by popular demand, co-producers and comedians Jeff Bergs and Rox Tarrant are back with a lineup of nationally-talented stand-up comedians.

Rob Brackenridge is a 25-year comedy veteran and one of the country's top comedians. He grew up in Appleton, Wisconsin and headed for Hollywood 10 years ago. He has garnered rave reviews for his writing and performing style.

In 2008, Brackenridge was chosen to entertain the troops in Saudi Arabia. A regular on the nationally syndicated Bob and Tom Radio, he travels the U.S. and internationally. He puts his own spin on growing up in the Midwest and how that compares to life in Los Angeles.

Wendy Maybury will also be featured. She is a popular stand-up comedian in the Twin Cities. For the past four years, Maybury has become one of the fastest-rising young comics. She was a finalist in the MOA House of Comedy's "funniest person with a day job" contest in 2011.

Local favorites Bergs and Tarrant will also make appearances.

Tickets are $20 for reserved VIP seating, advance purchase required at Garden Center Lanes. General admission tickets are $15.
