This seems to be the week of the essay show, with Mortified and Sit N' Spin both tackling the genre, albeit in different ways. There's a ton of smaller shows around town too, like Benderdangle at the iO West Andy Dick theater on Saturday at 8p. In short, there's no reason to not get out and see some great stand up at Largo, or catch award-winning shows for free at Comedy Central Stage, or even drive down to Irvine for known headliners. Also, in recently developed (and huge) news, Martin Lawrence is back for some stand up at the Comedy Store on Friday and Saturday nights.

This week's got it all, folks, and if you want to see your show (or the show of a loved one) committed to this digital ink, email Farley and let him know. The guy's practically beggin' for it, which sounds about as sexual as it's intended to be.

MONDAY 11/16

Comedy at The Castle, 8p Magic Castle. Longtime comedy legends (and Emmy and Grammy award winners) Hunter and Stan Freberg are headlining this new comedy show at the famous Magic Castle. For tickets / reservations call: 323-851-3313 (x434). Note: there's a strictly enforced dress code, and you HAVE TO HAVE a reservation to get in. It's still a private club, after all.

Armando Show, 10p iO West. This week, the stories that inspire the improv will come from Eric Stonestreet and Jesse Tyler Ferguson from Modern Family. Score.
