Location Description:

Yet another First Friday must-see, this downtown Phoenix gallery space hosts the monthly comedy show First Friday Night Live. The Firehouse stage show features local performers such as Shaikh Sammad, Anna Moncada, Dwayne Holmes, and John Luther, of the band Haymarket Squares. They create fresh skits each month and bring in guest artists from the Strange Family Circus to Mizz Luy Morals, a local burlesque dancer. The topics are always relevant and shocking, giving the whole shindig an organic feel.
