Bracket Night: Best Holiday Song

Thursday, December 9 at 7:30PM

Join us as a panel of Holiday Song experts delight and persuade our audience to vote the bracket of 16 contenders down to 1 winner–the most wonderful song of the season. This month’s panelists include Aaron Crutchfield, Christa Lerch, Jethro Nolen, and Emily Orbin — four committed comedians who have been roasting chestnuts, decking halls, and spinning like tops in anticipation of this show! So load up a sleigh and Baby, please come to Arcade for a merry little evening of laughter, singing, and checking the bracket at least twice, or until we have found the true meaning of Bracket Night — using subjective arguments to choose an objective outcome!

The Latchkey Kids

Friday, December 10 at 8:00PM

We/re home alone, so come over for a variety show featuring improv, live music, stand-up comedy, and vintage videos from those wonderfully horrible 90s. And 80s. And maybe like some early 2000s. But nothing after 2002. We do have integrity. Join us and special guests as we celebrate the media that made us who we are (for better or worse)! The Latchkey Kids were voted one of the Best Comedy Troupes of 2021 by the readers of Pittsburgh City Paper. Our parents are very proud, but they do wish we wouldn’t curse so much.
