Born and raised in Milwaukee, UW-Madison graduate Charlie Berens has gone on to become a comedian, host, actor, and Emmy-winning journalist. His unique blend of journalism and comedy has led him through media accomplishments including creating content for Funny or Die, TBS Digital and Fox Sports 1, and hosting shows for Fox, CBS Sports Network and Variety. He’s best known as creator and star of the viral Manitowoc Minute video series, a weekly show covering everything from national news to Wisconsin news to “used bubblers for sale on Kenosha’s Craigslist.” The Manitowoc Minute has grown into an hour-long variety show that sells out venues, often within a matter of minutes. This is a new show which he created recently.

The event is presented by the Wisconsin Union Theater’s Performing Arts Committee and High Gear Promotions.
