It’s a full week in Boston comedy, but the good news is that it’s spread out nicely through the weekend
The best part about the comedy scene blossoming in and around Boston is that there is never a shortage of shows to check out, as homegrown talent, national headliners, and open mics galore make their way through and around the area all the damn time. And we want to make sure you know about it. Enter Mic’d Up.
Check back every Monday for a fresh slate of shows to check out. Below is our rundown through Sunday (March 15).
