FRIDAY LOWDOWN: A Grand Opening for Eureka’s New Comedy Club

In-N-Out, Schmin-N-Schmout… Eureka now has a comedy club! After a couple months experimenting with programming the folks at Savage Henry Magazine are prepared to label Friday’s show the grand opening for the Savage Henry Comedy Club at 415 Fifth St. (you may remember it as the former site of the Red Fox Tavern). Tonight’s big headliner is none other than veteran road comic Billy Wayne Davis — you can take Billy for a test drive in the Conan clip above, then find full details on tonight’s show, and/or other Friday joys in your Lowdown listings below.
