    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 an empty venue, because they and you and almost everybody else is gobbling turkey and dealing with the *fnord* relatives, right? But then you can check out that award-winning Parallelogramophonograph (with The Ladies Room) and the Big Bash fanciness on Friday; and get ready for Dance Dreams on Saturdays, improv about the drama-fraught world of competitive dance – right after the student-driven Maestro Raw, and right before the extemporaneous donnybrook of that main Maestro event. See website for more.
    Nov. 9-11. Thu.-Sat., 7:30-10pm

    It's … subterranean!

    It's the underground space Downtown, swarming with improvisers and stand-up comics and sketch artists, here in the powerhouse founded by Chris Trew and Tami Nelson. Monday nights feature Fuck This Week, wherein your moans, groans, gripes, and complaints are turned into comedy gold. They let Rob Gagnon do his Sandbox thing on Tuesdays at 9pm, Wednesdays get some work done in the Garage, Thursday means everybody's at home and getting drunk or remaining intensely sober, and Friday rocks with the The Franchise and Stoned v. Drunk v. Sober, whereas Saturday's stage is Spitballin' – and we reckon the popular Megaphone Show that night will do its public-pleasing thing, too. And on Sunday, the – ah, see website for more shows and details.

    Stone Cold Comedy

    Check out what's happening in this right-next-to-that-funky-video-store hotbed of comedy. This Thursday showcases you, at home with your family, right? Because the joint's closed for Thanksgiving. But then there's the laughalicious ladies of Loverboy going all Kiss and Tell on Fridays; that Live at ColdTowne stand-up showcase hosted by Carina Magyar on the same night; and don't miss Saturday's Barney Miller: Dark Knight, wherein your favorites from the 12th precinct deal with the day-to-day in Batman's Gotham; and then, Martini Ranch's Queer & Now sketches and Midnight Society! Oh, and Sunday's Stool Pigeon! See website for more.
