Saturday, January 28th at 8pm- Enter Spider
It was so fun, so bizarre, and since so many people requested it…. Matt McKenna is doing it again!
You’re entering a stand-up comedy show on the edge of time and space; in a place where light and shadow are often mistaken for a biracial gay couple; where the lineup of comics are from all walks of life… *and* death. There is no two drink minimum here, there is only the maximum occupancy of the Imagination! You are entering… ENTER SPIDER.
$8 in , $10 at the door
