With the rain largely gone, it's a great week to get out and enjoy the comedy. There's a good mix of shows offering (what else?) a good mix of stand up and sketch, improv, or music. Beyond that, internet superheroes Harvard Sailing Team are at the Comedy Central Stage and Marc Maron pops his head up a few times.

If you've got a show you'd like to see listed in the future, email me.


MONDAY 11/7

Brunch, 9p The Park Restaurant. This is, perhaps, the strongest Brunch line up to date, and that’s saying a lot. Jason Nash, Jonah Ray, Moshe Kasher, Maria Bamford, Marc Maron and more.
