Spokane Comedy Club has been impressively contorting its business model throughout the pandemic, with the banning of live performances leading to the venue turning to churning out milkshakes, pizzas and breakfast to get to the other side of COVID. So even though reaching Phase 2 in Spokane means shows there are limited to 25 percent capacity, you can imagine they’re thrilled to be back doing what they do best — putting on live shows by all manner of touring and local comedians. This weekend, that means the return of regular visitor Pablo Francisco, whose combination of social media savvy, impressive impressions and character work led him to the cast of Mad TV, constant tours and a few Comedy Central specials.
Thu-Sun, Feb. 25-28, various times • $15-$28 • Spokane Comedy Club • 315 W. Sprague Ave. • spokanecomedyclub.com • 318-9998
