Our fair county can check that box after tonight’s latest Savage Henry comedy night at Humboldt Brews which will be headlined by Barry Rothbart. In addition to performing on The Tonight Show and Conan, our man somehow managed to land a role as an asshole stockbroker in The Wolf of Wall Street. Dayum.
