FARGO — Front Street Taproom will host four nights of professional stand-up comedy in the next couple weeks at its basement comedy club, The Cellar, 614 Main Ave.

James Hodge, who currently lives in North Carolina, has been performing comedy professionally for more than a decade and opened for several comedy legends, including Dave Chapelle, Marc Maron and Bobcat Goldthwait. His comedy is a blend of sardonic social commentary and musings about his life as a father and husband, according to a news release. Tickets for Hodge's March 29 and 30 shows are $15 in advance and $20 at the door.

Matt Braunger, a storyteller and master of the spin delivery, was a cast member on MADtv. He brings his hilariously relatable act to The Cellar on April 5 and 6. In addition to stand-up comedy, Braunger has held a recurring role on NBC's "Up All Night" and has appeared on numerous comedy TV shows, including "How To Be A Grownup," "Maron" and more. Tickets for Braunger's show are $20 in advance and $25 at the door.

All shows begin at 7 p.m., with doors opening at 6:30. Tickets are available online at, in the taproom or at the door.
