Dobie Maxwell

Schlitz Happened!


Nationally touring standup comedian and Milwaukee native Dobie Maxwell has created a one of a kind special treat for anyone who lived in the Southeastern Wisconsin area in the second half of the 20th century. Dobie has combined the unique highlights of Milwaukee culture with his own amazing life story to produce a hilarious hybrid of comedy and theatre, which will tickle the funny bone and touch the soul. It’s laughter with a message, and the show is suitable for all ages.

Dobie has been touring North America since 1985 and has appeared with Jerry Seinfeld, Jeff Foxworthy, Drew Carey and countless others. He appeared on CBS TV’s The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson in 2009 in addition to The Morning Blend on WTMJ TV in Milwaukee. He was the first comedian ever to perform at Milwaukee’s Germanfest in 2010 and is a regular guest on WGN radio in Chicago and ESPN 540’s The D-List in Milwaukee. Dobie writes his daily "Dented Can Diary" blog chronicling his adventures as a comedian onstage and off. It can be found along with his current tour schedule and merchandise at his website.

Milwaukee life and culture in the 2nd half of the 20th Century is the focus of nationally touring standup comedian and Milwaukee native Dobie Maxwell’s original one-person show titled “Schlitz Happened! - An Old Milwaukee Blatz From The Pabst.”

Dobie Maxwell is a standup comic who began performing in his hometown of Milwaukee in 1985 before performing throughout North America. He successfully applied his craft in all 48 Continental United States and all across Canada and the Caribbean in comedy clubs, colleges, corporate events and cruise ships. But wherever Dobie has appeared in his extensive travels, he has never lost track of the fact that he is and always will be a Milwaukeean, no matter how far he may stray from the 414 area code.
