City Editor Kristen here. 👋 You know what they say: laughter is the best medicine. Even if it isn’t the best medicine, there are a plethora of short + long term health benefits to having a good laugh. That’s even more reason to check out some of the local + regional comics at Carpetbagger’s Comedy Night at Bode or Emmy-award winning comic Wanda Sykes at Memorial Auditorium this weekend.
