LAst Laugh: This Week in Comedy

Your tax-deductible gift today powers our reporters and keeps us independent. We rely on you, our reader, not paywalls to stay funded because we believe important news and information should be freely accessible to all.

There's plenty of great comedy to get out and see this week, especially at Largo. They've got The Mighty Boosh's Rich Fulcher and Paul F. Tompkins on back to back nights. Otherwise, there are a few benefit shows (which always get love here), the iO West Harold Competition winds down, and the big MaxFunDrive bash at Meltdown Comics (which is secretly killing comedy lately), running from 4pm to midnight on Friday.

If you'd like to see a show of yours listed, send me an email and we'll be best friends forever.

MONDAY 5/24

Special Benson Interruption, 8p Silent Movie Theater. Doug Benson takes on the 3rd Friday the 13th as part of the Comedy Death Ray movie series at the Silent Movie Theater.
