    Comedy

    Punch Comedy

    That's right, Matt Bearden's legendary Tuesday night comedy showcase returns for another year of highlighting the best talent in town. Not sure who's on the lineup – it changes from week to week, of course, and is sharply curated – but there's always Bearden, of course, and a bunch of people who can make you laugh yourself to shambles. Word to the wise: This gig sells out like whoa, so reserve tickets early.
    Tue., Oct. 15, 8pm. $7-11.
