The Gateway Show

Friday, October 28
1425 West 14th Street, Tempe
This is not your typical comedy show. These comics will tell you some jokes, sneak off to an undisclosed location to get high, then return and try to tell you more jokes. Valleywide smokers who bust a gut chuckling at their cannabuddies' jokes can now be in the presence of a professional comedian who's likely just as high as the spectators. Organizers promise show-related prizes for audience members at the end of the event. Did someone say Cheech and Chong or Bluntman or Scary Movie costumes — wink wink — to begin the Halloween weekend? This stand-up showcase humbly began in Seattle in 2014 and is now touring worldwide, with the Valley stop hosted by Billy Anderson. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. Admission starts at $15 in advance, $20 at the door.
