Picks of the week are here!  Very cool week ahead, and it's my birthday on Thursday!

Also exciting, I've got FREE Tickets to Fresh Faces (Info) at the Laugh Factory on Wed.  Email nick@laughfactory.com with your name and the size of your group for FREE tickets.  Featuring great young comedians like Josh Adam Meyers & Jen Murphy, plus the god damn amazing Brody Stevens as the headliner.

And so now, The Picks...

Monday the always spectacular What's Up Tiger Lily (Info) has Brody Stevens, Myq Kaplan and a jam-packed lineup as usual. 8 pm at Hollywood Studio Bar & Grill - FREE!

Wednesday is this month's edition of Ari Shaffir's Storyteller series This Is Not Happening.  In honor of the holidays (not really. maybe?), Steve Rannazzisi, Russell Peters and Marc Maron will be sharing the hilarious and/or very very sad stories of losing their virginity.  8 pm at The Hollywood Improv (Tickets) - only $5

Thursday is My Birthday so of course I'm having a comedy show with Jayson Thibault, Justin Martindale, Tony Hinchcliffe, Dan Madonia and Julia LoVetere.  And grinders, there's an open mic starting at 11, but get there earlier if you want the free food (I know you do).  8:30 pm at Red Rock Bar - FREE (Info)
