The first annual Week of Fun comedy festival starts today, showcasing the best of Seattle's alternative comedy scene. Standup comedy has traditionally been seen as a cross between monologues and monkeys throwing poop. We hope you feel "alternative comedy" proves to be otherwise. What is alternative comedy? I don't know, but I think it involves robots and/or hobos. Cathy Sorbo, Matt Schmidt, Meghan Hounshell, and Andy Peters. Visit for more info. (Live Girls! Theater, 2220 NW Market St. 8 pm, $6, 21+.)
