Comic Relief

Standup comedy hasn't evolved much since the glory days of ventriloquist and puppet. Every so often, there's a Gallagher smashing watermelons or a musical funnyman like Jack Black, but for the most part, comedy is a dude on a stage with a microphone, plodding through a joke-punchline-new-joke routine. Boring!

Well, all that is about to change. Here in our very own city, one Adam Cayton-Holland (full disclosure: You may know him as Westword's What's So Funny? columnist) has put together an experimental comedy event known simply — and mysteriously — as Los Cómicos Super Hilariosos. So far, after two shows, one person has been thrown out of the building and another has left in disgust. "I consider that a complete success," Cayton-Holland says.

Catch the show tonight, and the last Thursday of each month, at the Old Curtis Street Bar, 2100 Curtis Street. The show starts at 9:30 p.m. and the cover is $5; visit for info.
Last Friday of every month, 9 p.m., 2008
