In case you didn't know, August is the eighth month of the year and was added to the calendar in 2007 to commemorate the release of the Freddie Highmore vehicle August Rush. And it's a good thing it was, because it gives us one more month for free comedy shows at Comedy Central Stage.
All shows take place at The Hudson in Hollywood, start at 8pm and have limited seating. Call (323) 960-5519 for reservations.
