BILLY WAYNE DAVIS, OWEN STRAW
Two of Seattle's most consistently terrific comedy workhorses headline at the Underground this week—the chicken-fried charisma of Billy Wayne Davis ("the thinking man's hillbilly") and Owen Straw's deadpan absurdism. Comedy Underground, 8:30 pm, $15 adv/ $20 DOS, 21+.
WEIRD & AWESOME WITH EMMETT MONTGOMERY
I've already written about this comedy/variety show (there are only so many comedy showcases to showcase, you know), but that was before I attended one. And what an adorably magical time it was! Montgomery keeps the lineup diverse and sincere and surprising. All are welcome: storytelling, dance, spoken word, straight-up jokes, and anything else that can play out on a stage. ADORABLE. Annex Theatre, 7:30, $10, all ages.
