Tuesday, April 1's Lowdown

"This year's World's Strongest Man Contest will include the Tug-of-war event, but rather than using rope for the contest, they'll use a _(blank)_."

You'll recognize this as being a question in the format you may have heard on the salacious (for its time) '70s game show Match Game, a show featuring a panel of B-list celebrities being amused with themselves. Great TV.

Tonight at Humboldt Brews, the crew at Savage Henry Magazine are mining nostalgia and co-opting the classic game show's format with a panel of local yuk-slingers and host Chris Durant. We've been informed that the contestants will be selected from the audience at the event, so if you're feeling confident that you think similarly to small town comedians, well, you should go and stuff. 

Or if you hate game shows, there's plenty of Tuesday night goodness in your Lowdown below. And remember to plan for the weekend ahead by checking out the Lowdown Lookahead
