Lowdown for Wednesday, Feb. 17

Wednesday Lowdown: Sean Patton at Humbrews Tonight

If you have not already made the significant financial commitment required to bask in the tales of Garrison Keillor at the Van Duzer Theatre and you’re maybe looking for some more budget-friendly live wit this eve, Savage Henry would like to assist. Standup Sean Patton headlines a night of funny at Humboldt Brews featuring a recipe of comedians local and foreign.

Is this guy funny? you feel the need to ask for some reason. Weeellllll, Patton was at one point deemed humorous enough to be allotted time on Conan O’Brien’s fine programme — not that he’s less funny now, it’s just that, well, you all know who Conan is and … OK, the following clip is kinda old. Watch it. Enjoy it. And if you feel the need to know more about how Patton’s brain functions, check out an interview with him on Savage Henry’s website.

Do you hate comedy? OK! Less funny events in your Lowdown listings below.
