The big weekend gig in town is Amy Schumer at the Mahalia Jackson Theatre, but the best value has got to be Friday night's show at Dragon's Den. The show features a trio of local comics made good, returning to town for the festive season. Story-teller extraordinaire Sean Patton heads the line-up, with Schumer's regular support act Mark Normand featuring. Also on the bill is Adam Cayton-Holland. Locals Vincent Zambon and Mary-Devon Dupuy provide hosting and support. Dragon's Den, 8pm doors/8.30pm show. $15.
