    It's … Hideoutrageous!

See website for more.

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 presents The Most Awkward Show on Earth – so someone needs to show up to watch it, or it's gonna be real, uh, you know – followed by Bonfire, and Friday brings the return of The Franchise and Stoned vs. Drunk vs. Sober, whereas Saturday's stage is bright with comedy claymation in the form of StapleFace. 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.
