Sunday, April 17
Many of us need all the laughs we can get around this taxing time of the year, so the Laugh-a-Palooza at Lucid Stage Secret Lives of Comedians at Lucid Stage (29 Baxter Blvd., Portland) is well timed. It kicks off April 14 with a show by PIE (Portland Improv Experience) and concludes tonight with Secret Lives of Comedians, the monthly show of sketches, improv, game shows and music (this month, the psychobilly of Pete Witham and the Cozmik Zombies) presented by stand-up favorites Brian Brinegar and Cloud Morris, at 7:30 p.m. Tix: $10.
