Cutting-edge comedy in Spokane and Pullman, plus a worthy river benefit

Posted By on Fri, Feb 27, 2015 at 10:05 AM


Closing down February with incredibly spring-like weather is pretty hard to beat. I suggest you take advantage by diving into our extensive event listings and professionally culled Staff Picks for some ideas of what to do today. 

Here are some highlights I found for Friday, Feb. 27: 

COMEDY | If you're looking for comedy of the light and fluffy "Hey, how about that airline food?" variety, go ahead and skip Neil Hamburger tonight at The Bartlett. But if laughs made at the intersection of uncomfortable confrontation and performance art sounds like your thing, you'll find no one better than this character created by Gregg Turkington. I saw W. Kamau Bell perform at The Bartlett at the venue's first delve into live comedy, and the room works great. Expect the same tonight. Here's a taste of Hamburger, working on the fly: 


COMEDY | There are few names more revered in sketch comedy that Upright Citizens Brigade, the group that spawned the likes of Amy Poehler and current Saturday Night Live headlines Kate McKinnon and Bobby Moynihan. The touring company drops by the Palouse tonight for a show at WSU

COMMUNITY/BENEFIT | Winter Waters 2015 at Patsy Clark Mansion is a celebration of local rivers and the people who work to protect it, as well as a fundraiser by the Center for Environmental Law & Policy for the advocacy done by the Upper Columbia River Group of the Sierra Club.
