Something you rarely see in Richmond...

However this week you will have an opportunity to see more than your fair share. Tonight at the National you can find yourself in the audience for Russ Parr (of the Russ Parr morning show) featuring Earthquake, Ashy Larry, Red Grant, and Huggy LowDown. From what I can tell it'll be a show chock full of racial comparisons and stereo-typical relationship banter. Looks like tickets are still available Show HERE Kicks off at 7:30.

If you're in the mood for something a little more playful (and a little less funny) you could always trek your ass out to the Funnybone located in the Short Pump towncenter for Steve Byrne. Steve is a self proclaimed Caucasian and Asian which makes him CaucAsian. As with anyone who comes from a mixed background, that's exactly what his comedy is about. Check out full details HERE.

Now if you're looking for gritty, raw, honest, and OH SO libertarian comedy you'll want to see Doug Stanhope on August 13th. If the name sounds familiar it is, he took over the Man Show after Adam Corolla left and has been on HBO and Comedy Central on numerous occasions. Doug's return to Richmond has been much anticipated considering every corporate comedy club in America has banned him from returning including the Funny Bone in Richmond! He's quoted as saying that "The Funny Bone are to comedy what Olive Garden is to authentic Italian food."
That's probably why you're only gonna see Doug's unapologetic show at Plaza Bowl. Tickets are still available you can find them HERE.

I know this is a primarily music oriented site and sorry if you were looking for show updates but comedy is still something that I believe this town is severely lacking in. If you guys catch any of these events let me know what you think...in the comment section...
