April is both National Poetry Month and Jazz Appreciation Month, which is fine if you're into that lowbrow kind of stuff. But for those of us with more refined tastes, there's Comedy Central Stage at The Hudson in Hollywood. They've got eight great shows lined up for April and they're all free. Check out the full schedule below.
All shows start at 8pm and have limited seating. Call (323) 960-5519 for reservations.
