Tighten Up Friday...

Wow what a week. Partied with some local stars of comedy at Jokes and Notes then we all went up to Coles Bar on Wednesday, now my head still hurts. Speaking of stars; WWE Superstar CM Punk showed up at the I SHIT YOU NOT!  anniversary show up at the The Lincoln Lodge yesterday. If you don't know anything about wrestling trust me, that's huge. That man is pretty much as big a star as you can get in the wrestling world, so Kudos to the producers, Michael Sanchez and Monte La Monte, for however the hell they got that to happen.

AS USUAL a whole sh*t ton of top comedy events are going down this weekend that we did not necessarily get a chance to plug in the Monday "What's Popping" segment. So... check out what's listed, then get out there and support some local comedy.
