    Underground Comedy

    This newly revitalized basement venue is dedicated to "bringing the best in alternative comedy with shows seven nights a week." For instance: Monday starts things off with that sprightly revue of optimism called Fuck This Week, there's Rob Gagnon's unpredictable Sandbox on Tuesdays, the all-female comedy showcase called Garage on Wednesdays, and check out the live podcast of Comedy Wham with Aaron Brooks and friends this Thursday. Then, on Friday, you can discover just how Comics Aren't Cool – and don't miss the inarguable power of Sure Thing hosted by Duncan Carson and Brendan K. O’Grady. Saturday's got the conspiracied-up Psychosphere ready for you, Mr. Jones, followed by some story-centered Sweet Lightning, and – see website for more. Oh, wait, is that goddam Brenner gonna be part of Saturday's Sweet Lightning gig this week? Should we, like, at least mention that or nah?
