We might be short on toilet paper, but one Huntsville non-profit business is making sure we aren’t short on laughs. Shenanigans Comedy Theatre is hosting drive-in comedy shows for Huntsville families and comedy fans. Just like a drive-in movie theatre, these performances will happen at a distance, while you watch from inside your car using a radio channel for audio. GENIUS!
Kimberly Wilson and Jessica Cotton were trying to find a way to lift people’s spirits and keep doing what they love to do – comedy. The Drive-In idea came from their 11 year-old, Chandler. There are two drive-in experiences to choose from, and the one for kids is totally FREE! Flatten the curve AND shorten the joy gap with these two great options.

There will be joke battles at each car. Both comedians will tell a joke and the car will vote for which joke was better, or maybe which joke was worse. There will be Dad Jokes, puns, knock knock jokes…. so they will be funny or groan-worthy, but kids love them!
