If you haven’t seen Susan Rice do comedy, you’ve done yourself a disservice. She is wry and witty and wise and I’m sorry for the alliteration but she’s wonderful. Susan been performing for over 30 years, slaying audiences and inspiring comics the whole time. You’ve still got three chances to see her tonight at Harvey’s (5pm, 7:30pm and 10pm) with the also amazing Nathan Brannon and Jacob Christopher. Be there folks!!
But one of your very best options on Saturday night is to head over to the Mission Theater at 8pm (doors at 7). There you will find the absolutely hilarious stand-up of Susan Rice, Art Krug, and Dave Anderson. The show is a benefit for the Beverly Cleary School, so you get to feel good while you feel good. Tickets are $20 in advance or $25 at the door. The Mission Theater is at 1624 Northwest Glisan St.
