Oh, Charity events. So charitable. So rarely—what’s the word? Funny. Cue McSweeney’s to the predictably witty rescue. 826 Valencia’s Sixth Annual Comedy Night, "An Evening of A Thousand Scowls," shakes down this Saturday, March 29, at Everett Middle School Auditorium with a host of talent who promise guffaws aplenty. On the bill: Bobby Lee, Tig Notaro, Al Madrigal, Jonathan Coulton, Ian Edwards, and my personal friend, Davy Rothbart of FOUND Magazine (and unparalleled storytelling ability) fame. Be there, or be frowny.
