Staff pick: Poor Comedians at Pour House Tavern

From the August 16, 2012 edition

Damn, there are so many good local comedy shows going on that I’m beginning to have trouble keeping up with them all. A few months ago I checked out the Poor Comedians show, and after some drunken, rude loudmouths were ridiculed out the door — you had it coming folks, don’t mess with comedians — it was one of the best bar shows I’ve ever seen. The comedians were all hilarious, including host Shannon Parkevich, who also organizes the event, and the beer selection was solid. This Friday, Parkevich will perform along with one of Columbus’ best, Chris Coen (pictured). Running the third Thursday of every month, the Poor Comedians show is another fantastic comedy show to add to your calendars.
