Schedule

THURSDAY JANUARY 20

Orally Fixated

(THE FUN STARTS NOW) The fourth annual Week of Fun comedy festival starts today, showcasing the best of the Seattle comedy scene. The first show of the fest, ORALLY FIXATED, is a storytelling show based around this month’s theme “Rooming with Disaster.” Comics include Rylee Newton, Ross Parsons, and more. I don’t have any roommate stories, since nobody will live with me.
(Comedy Underground, 109 S Washington St, 8pm, all ages, $8) DARTANION LONDON


FRIDAY JANUARY 21

Bloody Weird

(WE’RE NOT IN ENGLAND) Combine weirdo standups and an honest-to-badass LIVE SLASHER MOVIE made up in front of your eyes by improv supergroup Blood Squad, and what do you get? SOMETHING A BRITISH MAN WOULD LOVE SAYING. Also an extreme run-on sentence.
(Market Theater, 1428 Post Alley, 8:30pm, all ages, $10) DARTANION LONDON

Tickets available here.


SATURDAY JANUARY 22

Super Mega Art Show

(PREVENT ART ATTACKS) If there’s one criticism most people have of performance art it’s that it’s not pretentious enough. Hanz and Hiemen are here to solve that problem. These two fake foreign artists make more artistic art in a minute than most artists make in a lifetime.

Art is truth. Truth is pain. Pain is funny. Super Mega Art Show.
