Tuesday, Aug. 19's Lowdown

Ooo la la! Have we ever had a comedian take the Humboldt stage who has worked with Martin Scorsese before? Seems unlikely. 

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.

Does being in critically acclaimed films make you funnier? Maybe! Judge for yourself Tuesday night and/or preview his yuks in this clip from Conan below.
