Saturday, March 10th at 8pm- Enter Spider
It was so fun, so bizarre, and since so many people requested it…. he’s 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.
