Performance Preview

Punch Lines, Not Punches

Rusty Rutherford celebrates another year of underground comedy shows

There is an “anything goes” vibe at the Third Thursdays Comedy Contest, a stand-up comedy night Rusty Rutherford has hosted monthly, in venues around Albuquerque, since 2007. At each event, he does a short set to kick off the night and then 10 other comics take turns performing. The audience votes to determine the night’s best three, and Rutherford invites these comics back the following month. He also schedules seven new performers. The anniversary show will feature the winning comics of the past year.

Smokes and Jokes

Stand-up at the hookah bar

If you're looking to do some heavy lounging and hearty laughing tonight, check out the Smokes and Jokes Stand-up Showcase. Terrene Hookah has a lot of pillows, smooshy chairs and other stuff you'd like to loll around on. The establishment allows in customers 18 years and over, but I have yet to see a giant crowd of dingbats wearing idiotic clothing flitting around in front, so you're probably safe from that. Smoke a hookah, play some cards and even surf the web if you want. And hear some jokes.
These fine comics will be performing:

Rusty Rutherford, who has performed across America, including on NBC's Last Comic Standing. He is known as a "comedic genius." By his mom.

Matt Peterson, who appeared on NBC’s Last Comic Standing and played a lead role in the comedic film Bigfoot Election.

Curt Fletcher who won the Great Southwest Laff Off in 2003, beating out 21 other comics. In 2007, he advanced to the semifinals of HBO's Lucky 21 contest. He also advanced twice to the semifinals of the New Faces contest at Comedy Works.

James Morrow has performed on multiple occasions at Terrene’s 3rd Thursdays Comedy Contest and is a regular at Hallenbrick Brewery’s Young, Dumb and Full Comedy show. Morrow can also be seen Saturday nights on My50 TV’s Duke City Comedy League.

The show starts at 7 p.m. and $10 gets you admission and bottomless hookah!
Terrene Hookah is at 106 Vassar SE.
