Comedy Tonight: Tuesday, Feb. 20

Posted By on Tue, Feb 20, 2024 at 4:00 AM

Savage Henry Comedy Club presents Oops! All Gimmicks, a show helmed by Cap’n Jack Fischer which is entirely comprised of the sort of comedy that largely went extinct with the decline and fall of Gallagher and two Carrot Top facelifts ago. We’re talking about prop comedy, celebrity impressions and sketches. All the schlock that’s fit for slopping down the entertainment gullet sans taste buds. The fun starts at 9 p.m. and you can pay whatever you desire for a spot in the gallery.

Event-organizer Topher Reynolds, a Eureka marble maker at Copious Glass and the Glass Garage Studio, said action actually got underway Friday night at the Glass Garage, where more than 20 glass artists each donated pieces that were assembled into a 3.5-inch mega marble by artist Seth Bickis. The one-of-a-kind 4-pound marble will be going into the permanent collection at the Clarke Museum after the end of the event, according to Reynolds, who said, “I want them to become known in the future for their marble collection.”

The event also featured live “torch working” and marble-making by local glass artists at the Glass Garage and “hot shop” glasswork demonstrations by in-house artists at John Gibbons Glass. See highlights of the event in the slideshow below.

Music Tonight: Thursday, Nov. 16

Posted By on Thu, Nov 16, 2023 at 4:00 AM

Some things, like university names, come and go, while others seem resistant to the forces of change. One of those things in the latter category is the university circus community, formerly HSU, now Cal Poly Humboldt. The Humboldt Circus Gist Hall performance Circus? You Hardly Know Us!  is an addition to a long tradition, so if you’d like to be a part of that continuum, roll through at 7:27 p.m. sharp and drop $10 ($8 for students) into the bucket. If memory serves, it’s a fun time.
