  1. Pints & Pandas stand-up comedy. Every 2nd at 4th Wednesday at Packs & Pints in Sparks there’s a free stand-up comedy show featuring regional headliners and Set List improvised comedy where 2 comedians will go head-to-head and come up with comedy bits on the spot based on random topics.

  2. Stop Kiss at The Potentialist Workshop. The show is “a poignant and funny play about the ways, both sudden and slow, that lives can change irrevocably,” says Variety. Catch this performance Thursday through Sunday with a portion of ticket sales to benefit Safe Embrace. Link for information.
  3. Vundabar at The Holland Project. Vundabar’s high-energy live show is the stand-out quality of this band and is an art they’ve undoubtedly perfected by touring non-stop around the country. Link for information.
