McSweeney's Presents: The World, Explained
The literary quarterly (and probably one of the more bizarrely published things out there today, with the slight exception of Found Magazine) presents an evening of comedy at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre. A variety of reasons might take you to this show, but the first and foremost should be the appearance of Paul F. Tompkins, gentleman comedian. And Zoey Deschanel ain't half bad either. Show is this Wednesday night at 9:30pm at the UCB Theatre, and tickets are a mere five smackers. Plus you'll have the added advantage of being able to pretentiously one-up your co-workers at the water cooler on Thursday.
