FRIDAY LOWDOWN: Oh Hey, Sam Tallent is Back

Sometime between performing at early editions of the Savage Henry Comedy Festival and now, when his novel Running the Light has made him the toast of the comic literary crowd (if such a thing exists) and earned him the title "New York Times Best-Selling Author" -- or, "NYTIMES BEST SMELLING AUTHOR" as his Twitter handle boasts -- Sam Tallent became kind of a big deal. But here he is, again making the trek up to Eureka for a weekend of shows at the Savage Henry Comedy Club. Catch him now, before he realizes how superior he is and/or scroll your Friday Lowdown below for less humorous human gatherings.
