    Comedy

    Underground Comedy

    This 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, the inarguable power of Sure Thing hosted by Duncan Carson and Brendan K. O’Grady every Friday night, and Arielle Isaac Norman's Off-Script Comedy (where hecklers are rewarded) on the third Saturday of each month.
