Staff Pick: Pride comedy show

Jackie Mantey, Columbus Alive

I'd recommend going to see this lineup of Columbus comedians regardless, but the fact that it is basically one big, funny pre-game for next weekend's Pride Festival only strengthens my belief that you should go see this show. Five standup comics from the LGBT and ally community (including funnyman Zachariah Baird, pictured) will perform. Trumping ignorance by making fun of it? More, please. Tickets are $10 at the door.
