There's so much great 'found' stuff going on this week, from the Found Footage competition courtesy of Cinefamily to the Found Magazine show at Largo. Add in some Kevin Nealon and some great sketch, and this week is really starting to look better than some of the decisions you made last weekend. Get AT ME if you want your ish hyped.

The Grind, 10p Westside Comedy. Nationally touring improvisers and some of Westside’s own homegrown talent get on stage for some long form.

Benson Interrupts Movies, 11p UCB. Doug Benson is back, and hilariously interrupting road movies. Expect some great support from other stand ups, of course.


Greg Proops Chat Show, 9p Largo. Come sit in with Greg as he talks to Mike Viola and the incomparable John C. Reilly.

The Jon & Eddie Show, 8p Comedy Central Stage. In a show directed by the amazing Frank Caeti, Alex Fox and Rachel Lewis bring some absolutely nutty Chicago humor to the left coast.


Found Magazine, 8p Largo. Get back to Largo for another installment of Found Magazine greats.

ComedyJuice, 10p The Improv. When last week’s show had Steve Hofstetter, Ben Gleib, Finesse Mitchell, and Daniel Tosh you know this is a stand up show you should be going to.

D.L. Hughley, 8p Comedy & Magic Club. You can’t deny D.L. when it comes to stand up and making shit happen for himself. He’s got a fucking talk show now, for crying out loud. The man just does it right.

Garfunkel & Oates, 8p UCB. Come on, get with it. These girls are the cat’s pajamas and we all know it, so get on over to UCB to laugh and smile and fall in love just a little bit.

All Systems Are Go, 9p Second City. A great line up of improvisers, including Matt Craig and Lloyd Ahlquist.


Tim & Eric, 8p Cinefamily. The funny sketch duo bring some of their new stuff and intro the great film True Stories, a film about the oddities of Texas as seen by the frontman of Talking Heads. Trippy.

Associates of Awesome, 8p iO West. Fresh off their Sketch Cage Match wins, the Associates are getting their coveted Friday night slot on the mainstage at iO West. These guys do great stuff.


Kevin Nealon, 9:15p Comedy & Magic Club. He’s on Weeds, he was on SNL, and he’s so goddamn funny it’s not, well, funny. GO GO GO.

Found Footage Battle Royal, 10:30p Cinefamily. 16 contestants battle it out with their weirdest video finds for obscure supremacy.


Make Me Laugh Comedy Circus, 7p The Ice House. Vic Dunlop and Bruce Baum are well known and well traveled, so expect a quality stand up show here.

Wonder Dudes, 11p iO West. These two sketch dudes are a laugh riot. Go to this show, if only for the sketch ‘1-2-3 Suits’.
