Bob Saget comes to The Wilbur Theatre
on Friday March 1st at 7pm. Saget, who has widely known as the all american nice guy, Danny Tanner, on the sitcom Full House, is actually a pretty risque comic, with a penchant for the dirty.... "I've always thought there was a time and a place for filth..." According to his website, the tone will be full of "filth and craziness." Will some of that make it into his stand-up act? See for yourself when he headlines at the Wilbur.
Rumor has it that Katy Perry (okay - maybe War Virgin's impersonation) will be in North End tonight, accompanying Paula Broadwell for her special performance: New War Virgin Comedy. This show has actually been quite the buzz event around town.
"If you want a hilarious, shocking, tell-all account of the Iraq invasion – the version they didn’t share on CNN – then watch the War Virgin perform in her monthly comedy series. Be regaled with true stories of her militarily influenced coming-of-age, starting with West Point – or what she fondly describes as the world’s biggest sausage fest. Then hear all about how the Iraq war ironically catalyzed her own sexual liberation, after being religiously repressed for her entire life."
I've spoken with a few people who have seen it, and they said it is absolutely hilarious. For only $12 it is completely worth it. If you love it so much that you have to see it a second time than you are in luck. She uses new material every month so if you can play the patience game you will be all set for a second round of laughs.

The 4th annual No Pants Subway Ride in Boston will take place on Sunday, January 9th in the afternoon at 2pm at Alewife. Specifics may change between now and the event, so register at our Boston Flash Mob site for email updates.
You must arrive by 2pm to receive instructions and be assigned to a team. Wear 2 or more pairs of underwear to prevent embarrassing "wardrobe malfunctions" as well as to keep your bits from freezing! Bring a bag/large purse/backpack/tall hat/briefcase to hide your pants in when the event starts. To receive instructions and to be assigned to a team, just look for the people with the umbrellas that have an interrobang ( â€½ ) on them
The official pants-free after-party for the 21+ only crowd will take place at McGreavy's near the Hynes T stop. It's going to be pretty phenomenal and an event in and of itself, so make sure you can attend for a bit. It isn't open-bar, but there's a pretty good chance we'll buy you guys a round.
A suggested and fantastic sounding location for an alcohol-free & under-21 after-party is pantless bowling in Davis Square.
The No Pants Subway Ride is a global event started by www.ImprovEverywhere.com in New York in 2002.
