The People Need to Laugh!
Sunday, February 11, Center for the Arts, 2 p.m., $20-$22
These days it can be tough to muster a smile, let alone a full-bellied laugh. Luckily, some top comedians will transform a Grass Valley stage into a comedy club for four straight weeks with The People Need to Laugh! Sunday shows. The series features finalists and winners of the San Francisco International Comedy Competition, which hosted the likes of Robin Williams, Ellen Degeneres and others before they made it big. The series will kick off with comedians Myles Weber, Shawn Felipe and Clara Bijl, with a different featured comedian every week through 3/4. 314 West Main Street in Grass Valley, www.thecenterforthearts.org.
