    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 bilingual badassery of Migas – 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 Soundstage 23, and right before the extemporaneous donnybrook of the original magister-marbled Maestro.

    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 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.

And 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 Barney Miller: Dark Knight debuting on Saturday, wherein your favorites from the 12th precinct deal with the day-to-day in Batman's Gotham; and then, House of 1,000 Sketches and Midnight Society! Oh, and Sunday's Stool Pigeon! See website for more.
