This is a week with a lot of great shows... all on the same night. So instead of my usual daily run-down, here's all the reasons I wish there were 3 of me:

Lower Crust Comedy at Ghenghis Cohen - JFL Showcase 9:30 pm
Lower Crust consistently has an amazing lineup and you know it's gonna be extra great with folks bringing their A game, trying to get to Montreal.
The Fresh Faces show introduced you to great you comics whose names aren't necessarily on any marquee around town, but are hilarious, talented and on the rise. After the show, you can vote online for your favorites. Hosted by Funny or Die's Michael Kvamme, this edition includes the adorable Theo Von and headliner Ben Gleib of Cheslea Lately.
Packed lineup, totally free! Andy Kindler, Lauren Ashley Bishop, Will Weldon, Dave Ross and more.
