Tuesday, Oct. 15, 2013's Lowdown

"No one is more judged, in civilized society, than the standup comedian. Every twelve seconds, you’re rated." -Jerry Seinfeld

We are aware that Tuesday night is a hard sell, HumCo. You're still three days away from weekend relaxation or that next bender depending on how you roll. But if you're feeling rested, the Lowdown is here to inform you that Alex Koll -- AKA the comedian Savage Henry Magazine is having shipped in to perform at HumBrews tonight -- was recently on Conan which, by one metric, makes you hilarious, right?

But funny is subjective. Thus, in an attempt to help you decide if THIS is a Tuesday worth destroying Wednesday for, LoCO raided YouTube so that you may judge Koll's humor in advance. You're welcome. Less comedic Tuesday night options in your Lowdown below.

Tuesday night. Tempting to travel no farther than the living room. But if you're feeling adventerous and like putting clothes on, go to The Living Rooms at Mad River's Tasting Room and have some award winning beer. Runner up: Larryoke.
