August is the last month of summer. Come September, you'll have to go back to school. Or, if you're an adult, continue working every day for the rest of your life with no seasons off. Fortunately, there's a whole month of amazing free Comedy Central Stage shows to make it all better.
All shows start at 8pm with limited seating at The Hudson in Hollywood. Call (323) 960-5519 for reservations.
