    It's … Hideoutrageous!

    There's a stage upstairs, there's a stage downstairs, there's coffee all over the place and all sorts of shows here. This Thursday brings you the Threefer and Free Fringe of improv, and you can check out that award-winning Parallelogramophonograph – now with The Glamping Trip – and the fancy-ass Big Bash on Friday; and the sweet, campy horrorshow tropes of Death by Musical on Saturdays, right after the student-driven Maestro RAW, and right before the extemporaneous donnybrook of the original magister-marbled Maestro. See website for more.

    Comedy

    Stone Cold Comedy

    Check out what's happening in this right-next-to-that-funky-video-store hotbed of comedy. Thursdays showcase longtime house improv troupe, the rightfully celebrated Frank Mills – and, afterward, you know nothing swings quite like the sketch of that Pendulum do. And then there's the laughalicious ladies of Loverboy going all Kiss and Tell on Fridays; the Movie Riot continuing to unreel its filmic lunacy that same night; and don't miss The Church of Man on Saturday, uncovering a contentious coven of men's rights activism, right before the doc-skewering Reel Lives. And then, Midnight Society! Oh, and Sunday's Stool Pigeon! See website for more.
