Live Wire

PENELOPE BASS
7:30 pm., Saturday June 01 | $20-$35.
Alberta Rose Theatre
3000 NE Alberta St.
 
As far as radio variety shows go, Live Wire is essentially the awesome antithesis of Prairie Home Companion. This week’s show will feature comedian and actress Kristen Schaal (Flight of the Concords, 30 Rock), writer Scott Jacobson (The Daily Show, Bob’s Burgers), comedian and author Jen Kirkman (I Can Barely Take Care of Myself: Tales From a Happy Life Without Kids), sex-advice columnist and founder of the “It Gets Better” project Dan Savage, cartoonist Lisa Hanawalt (My Dirty Dumb Eyes) and kick-ass band the Builders and the Butchers. Take that, Keillor.
