Comedians have a professional obligation to keep up with current events, which is how their monologues and satire help keep all of us so informed. For instance, did you know the T will be doing a yearlong test of late-night weekend hours? It’s true. The last trains will soon leave downtown stations at about 2:30 a.m. Friday and Saturday nights to accommodate people who are out late enjoying (and reviving) area nightlife.

That would be March 28, Rachel Klein, blogger about improv comedy, theater and other arts.

Jenny Zigrino, standup comic, vintage clothing hoarder and maintainer of this website also kinda knows what’s what:

Meanwhile, Boston writer, actress, and standup comedian Danielle Soto (who’s at the Comedy Studio on April 17) just goes on living life:

But the final word this week should go to Mickey McCauley, a Baltimore transplant and Boston comedian (who’s at the Studio on April 10):
