There is literally nothing funny about President Trump's petulant pout-fest over a fucking wall that has resulted in the longest government shutdown in U.S. history and has left over 800,000 American's without a paycheck.

But, if you have to laugh about it, Detroit native funny guy, Marc Evan Jackson, and his improv partner Paul F. Tompkins have extended an invitation to Detroit-area government workers affected by the shutdown to indulge in a free night of gentlemanly improv comedy at the Fillmore tomorrow.

"If you’re a Detroit-area fed worker affected by the shutdown, I’d love you & a guest to by MY guests at our comedy show this Fri Jan 25," Jackson tweeted.
"We’re opening a block of seats FREE @ the box office with your government ID."

Interested government workers with proper identification can send an email to marc@detroitcreativity to reserve tickets.

The evening of improvisational comedy is billed as “Two American gentlemen” who will “enact false stories for a duration of one full hour and perhaps 10 additional minutes.”
