Not Your Average Dream Blog
I was in New York City. I was watching a beautiful young man explain that “bucket drummers are particularly impressive because no one trains them” so very kindly to an elderly woman.
Suddenly I was in my chair at work seeing his face on my screen. “Hannibal Buress Live at The Historic El Rey Theater this Tuesday night!” the page said.
I became hot as I ferociously typed away buying tickets. Click. Click-click. Tap-tap-tap-tap. Click. CLICK.
Then I realized it wasn't a dream, but a dream come true. The brilliant comedian Hannibal Buress will be in Albuquerque Tuesday, April 26, at 7:30pm for those of us lucky sinners that are over 21.
Mr. Buress will also be in Santa Fe to perform at Skylight at 8pm, so those lucky bastards in Santa Fe get to be closer to him but it's not like it really matters because we all have the chance to absorb some of his near-perfect comedic genius.

Biweekly and Monthly Shows
While weekly comedy events will keep you avoiding sleep and things you really should get done, you definitely don’t want to miss out on even more local biweekly and monthly shows. As I wrote in my previous comedy post, things are going on all the time in Albuquerque. Here are the less frequent but equally funny shows going on around town.

Every other Wednesday (starting Jan. 13), 7pm, Mishmash Miscellany Assortment (MMA) Open Mic (Rio Bravo Brewing Company, 1912 2nd Street NW)
First Thursday of every month, 7:30pm, Carpe Diem Comedy (Imbibe, 3101 Central Ave NE)
Third Thursday of every month, 10pm, Third Thursday Comedy Contest (Tractor Brewing Company, 1800 4th Street NW)
Second Saturday of every month, 8pm, BlueByrd Comedy at Desert Rose Playhouse (Desert Rose Playhouse, 6921 Montgomery Blvd NE)
