Cushion yourself for this blow: the writers behind sketch comedy show First Friday Night Live have a new(ish) gig. Every third Saturday, acclaimed funny men Ian Murdock and Mike Gustie bring together a group of giggle-inducers to perform experiemental sketch comedy during Gary's Couch. "This isn't your mother's sketch comedy show," the show's organizers write. "Actually, it totally is, we asked her the other night." All righty, then.
You and your ma can take a seat when the comedic crew plays Space 55, 636 East Pierce Street, as the newest addition to the venue's late-night series.
