FRIDAY LOWDOWN: In Defense of Guy Fieri

UPDATE: Just kidding. Shane Torres's show, along with a lot of Friday's larger events, are victims of the coronavirus. See y'all soon.

# # #

Another hard week in the books and maybe you just want to drink and laugh. Hey, reasonable request. Luckily for you the Savage Henry Comedy Club will have shows on both Friday and Saturday night headlined by big name comedian Shane Torres. Of interest to yokels: Maybe Torres' most shared online bit is an earnest defense of Humboldt's favorite son Guy Fieri. Watch that above (and take notes). Less hilarious Friday events in your Lowdown listings below.
