Sure, it's the weekend before Thanksgiving. And yeah, you could spend it holed up in your apartment with a gallon jug of hair gel, clipping coupons for the early-bird Best Buy sale that's finally going to net you that sweet new cellular phone. Or maybe capitalizing random words and adding unnecessary quotes to phrases will keep you occupied all weekend.

But if you really want to out-creme your opponents, consider the closing weekend of the Los Angeles Comedy Festival. With an assortment of fine sketch, stand up, improv, and traditional stage comedy, you're likely to be doing more than giggling at a slightly naughty last name. And, because it's the closing weekend, you can expect lots of full-frontal assaults on your comedic senses.

Shows run all night in hour-and-a-half increments , and tickets are $10 for each show or $40 for 5 shows. Because of limited seating, you should probably reserve online. Otherwise, risk the joke being on you as you get tossed into the gutter because the theatre is at max capacity. And by 'joke' we mean dog poo.
