Monkey Pants Bar and Grill's Thursday night comedy event will feature Jackie Kashian, a comedian who has toured with Maria Bamford, performed on NPR's This American Life, and does a podcast called The Dork Forest.
The show will feature local comedians Teddy Bearskovich, Anthony Desamito, and S&M Comedy Podcast hosts Jamie Sanderson and Steve Marek.

Marek and Sanderson interviewed Kashian on their podcast which is updated bi-weekly and available on iTunes.
You'll be able to check her and other local comics out $5. (Tickets are available at the door). Monkey Pants Bar and Grill runs this event every Thursday, so if you like the vibe it'll probably be pretty good the next time around.
