The Friday-night comedy set includes sketches and standup by a flurry of local comics and special guests
Anderson Comedy has its fingers in many comedic pies around Boston, hosting numerous events for local up-and-comers to make their names. The company’s The Gas comedy show takes over Great Scott’s stage every Friday night to exercise audiences’ stomach muscles with standup sets by local comedians and special guests. Storyliars, held on the third Wednesday of every month, challenges audiences to identify which of the night’s storytellers are making up their tales. The comic confederation also hosts free open-mic nights on Tuesday, allowing unknowns to test their material in front of a captive audience and to control the venue’s laugh track.
