Wolfie's Comedy will kick off the comedy series at Upstairs Mullen's North with two special homecoming performances from former Pittsburgh comedian Jesse Joyce on February 18. Currently residing in New York City, Joyce has written for many of the famous Comedy Central roasts and opened regularly for the late, great Greg Giraldo.

In addition to the grand opening, Wolfie's will also feature a diverse lineup of comedians rotating between the North Side and South Side locations.

Upstairs at Mullen's is also the home of Comic Wars, the brainchild of Wohlfarth who says, "Comedy needs a good war." This fast-paced, interactive show involves the audience and puts comedians in uncomfortable situations testing their true comedic skills. Each team of comedians is graded on how well they deal with those challenges and is awarded points for their effort - with the audience acting as judge.
