Good lord! there’s a lot of comedy tonight. The Harvard Sailing Team and Maximum Brain Squad knocked us out last night at the CBT King Street Studios and there’s even more tonight. Check it all out here and here. How do you choose with so much to choose from? Beats me, my friend. I’m in the same pickle as you. Do what you can, but there’s one thing for sure — whatever you pick, it’s bound to be funny. —J.S.
