Bobcat Goldthwait Tonight in Arcata (VIDEO)

Bobcat Goldtwait is back, kids! It would appear that the acclaimed director didn’t get enough Humboldt weirdness when he debuted his celebration of Bigfoot culture/horror film Willow Creek at the Arcata Theatre Lounge back in May -- he'll be hanging at the ATL again tonight. The difference is this trip he'll be indulging in the art form that first made him famous his first love: standup comedy. 

It's probably been noted to death at this point that the over-the-top look and persona the propelled Bobcat to fame in the '80s is no more, a fact he celebrates -- his latest standup special was titled "You Don't Look The Same Either." So to get an idea of what you're getting into if you venture out to the Arcata Theatre Lounge tonight, the Lowdown will include the clip below.
