WDET presents Comedy Night from your car! 

What's So Funny About Detroit? Is back!

This time, we’re taking it on the road and bringing some of the funniest comedians from Detroit to the Canterbury Village Drive-In Powered by Emagine in Lake Orion, Michigan.

While the comedians perform on stage with their image projected on the drive-in screen, the audio of the performance is broadcast directly into your vehicle via your radio.

WDET’s own Ryan Patrick Hooper is your host for the evening as he introduces you to (6) hilarious comedians  T. Barb - Jeffrey Ford - Blain Hill - Johanna Medranda - Alex Bozinovic - Melanie Hearn

It’s socially distanced, hilarious fun as WDET showcases some of the most talented, diverse voices from the city’s independent comedy scene.

This event is a benefit for 101.9 WDET-FM Detroit’s NPR station.

Tickets are $35 per car. Up to 6 people are allowed inside one vehicle.

Tickets must be purchased in advance online. There are no drive-ups.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. You cannot hold spaces for other vehicles.

Show starts promptly at 7:30 p.m. The show will be less than two hours long.


So how exactly does this work?

WDET's "What's So Funny About Detroit?" comedy stand-up series is moving to the drive-in! Imagine comedians on a stage projected on a big screen with the audio pumped into your car at a drive-in theater. The big screen (30ft x 14ft) has a bright LED light that can be seen even in sunlight conditions.
