- Arts + Culture
This past weekend saw the start of daylight saving time for the year as well as the return of some local Boston traditions.
An ImprovBoston standup comedy show will once again donate ticket sale proceeds to help people displaced by a Feb. 12 fire.
The Oscars were Sunday, and of course it was all about the glamour and star power. But comedians aren’t easily distracted from misery.
Whether it’s Marvel superheroes, bad weather or baseball greats, our local comedians know what you need to know.
So what’s in the news this week? Well, the Olympics, of course, but also Ellen Page coming out and another item concerning who and what we love (meaning candy): Valentines Day.
It’s the Olympics, and excitement is in the air! Well, at least for one comedian. For everyone else, life goes on as normal.
A cookbook sale. “Miss Congeniality” for free. Learn to cook Bangladeshi for free. Attend Art Party. Theater premieres for free (or $10). “All You Need is Myth” look at the Beatles.
This animated flick throws a lot of pieces at the audience – including a little Lego Batman voiced by Will Arnett – but it’s mainly sharp, smart and clicks along snappily.
TGIM, or whatever. If the idea of starting another workweek is getting you down, why not start it off easy with some comedy tweets from local comedians?
A teen charity rock concert at The Middle East. The Some Like It Hot Chili Cook-Off. Tanglewood Marionettes perform “The Dragon King.” My Bloody Valentine Vol. II comedy. And Beardfest!
