Tuesday, Jan. 14's Lowdown

Somehow, someway, the Savage Henry empire. Of course they publish their monthly bathroom reader filled with stories of bathroom experiences. Yes, they produce a fairly weekly podcast. Most recently they've branched into YouTube series (which reminds us, the third episode of Dutch Does … at Trees of Mystery is ready for your critiques). But what matters to us most here in Lowdown land is that they consistently push fresh, live regional and/or local comedians onto Humboldt stages. Yuk, you.

The latest example: S.H.I.T. will enhance your Tuesday if you allow them when they invade HumBrews for a show headlined by (we'll go with) "dark" Portland comedian Lonnie Bruhn. Over his two decades of standing in front of people, Bruhn has headlined national comedy festivals, been banned from his hometown's only comedy club and continued to up the sum honesty in his act, which includes discussion of weird sex, suicide and Bruhn's own experiences living with cerebral palsy. 

Is Bruhn's brand of funny for you? Maybe. Humboldtians can get to know him a bit better when chats on 94.1 KSLG  with Sherae O'Shaughnessy sometime around 10:30 a.m. (We'll post the audio here when the dust has settled.) Less edgy options in your Lowdown below.

UPDATE: As promised, hang out with Sherae, Lonnie and local comedian Joe Deschaine below:

Not sure why Dale Winglet isn't playing at Wingfest, but then again the world is a complicated place. For example: man nipples.
