Early Bird Special

261 E. 9 Mile, Ferndale, MI 48220

From $5.00

No upcoming date/times for this event.

EARLY BIRD SPECIAL is an original comedy written by and starring Metro Detroit playwrights Mitch Socia and Matt Penridge. It tells the story of Mitch and Matt, best friends and bona fide dolts, whose desire for free swag leads them to the Agency of Retired People (ARP*). Unfortunately, membership comes with the ultimate hidden fee . . . their youth! 


Featuring the incomparable Jen Socia, the insatiable Jacob Russell, and the incredible Molly Alampi.


If you’re a fan of absurd comedies such as Anchorman, Napoleon Dynamite, or Hot Rod, then EARLY BIRD SPECIAL is right in your dang wheelhouse.


*The ARP is for sure totally different than the AARP.


Friday Opening Act: THE BUREAU OF RAD

On November 1st, Go Comedy's distinguished Launch Group, THE BUREAU, will open the night with some sweet sweet sketch comedy.

Our Friday and Saturday shows do tend to sell out. Pre-purchasing your tickets for these shows is highly suggested. On Wednesday, Thursday, and Sunday, one ticket is generally good for the full night of shows (pending availability, but we're often available!)

We recommend you arrive at least 15 minutes before show time.


Even with a pre-paid ticket, seating is still assigned at the door on a first come first serve basis. Due to our cabaret style seating and our commitment to making sure everyone is seated comfortably, an early arrival does not guarantee a table of your choosing (but it helps!).


If you purchase 12 or more tickets at once, a 10% discount will be automatically applied to your order. Please let us know if you experience any issues with this discount!


Forms of payment accepted at the box office: CASH, VISA/MASTERCARD, AMERICAN EXPRESS, DISCOVER


Free Parking is available in our lot and the Courthouse next door after 5pm. Metered Parking is available on 9 Mile and in a lot across the street. The meter expires at 9pm, and is free on Sundays.


Refund Policy:

No refunds or returns.

Cancellation Policy:

In the event the venue cancels an event, you will be refunded within 4 business days of the event date for your purchase.
