Friday cannon fodder: Open thread talent show!

I don’t know if three times in a row of something that’s only existed overall for like a year can be considered “traditional”, but for the third week in a row, let’s do an open thread, because why not? I like talking to y’all.

What’s going on this weekend? We’re continuing our comedy show going-trend tonight, after last weekend’s Weird Al/Emo Philips show. We’re going to see Middleditch & Schwartz do some improv, thanks to the lovely mrs. pdb jumping at the chance to get tickets when they went on sale while I was off gallivanting around or something. Thomas Middleditch and Ben Schwartz are both hilarious, and I’m really looking forward to this show.

Do you like comedy, particularly stand-up comedy? Who’s your favorite comedian, either recently or all-time? Seen any good comedy shows lately? What other culture stuff do you enjoy seeing live - do you go to plays, opera, other types of performances?

Or, even better - do you create or participate in any of those things? Are you an actor/singer/artist? What’s your medium? I feel like we should do a TSF Commenter Talent Show one of these days - since I’m spectacularly devoid of talent, I love to immerse myself in the talents of the people around me, which includes you. If you’re currently doing something you’re really proud of, let us know what it is - I’d love to hear about it!

But even broader than that, this is an open thread, so you tell me what you want to talk about!
