Tuesdays with glory

You may have heard that Giant Tuesday Night of Amazing Inventions and Also There Is a Game—one of the shows that helped solidify Rififi as a comedy venue—is ending its four-year run on December 19. No doubt the city will lose an inventive and consistently funny showcase. But since Andres du Bouchet, the show's creator and host, will now be focusing on a solo career, I'll call it an even trade.

This just in: The Drink at Work Show, a relatively new but promising variety night, will fill the coveted Tuesday at 8pm slot at Rififi. After burning the late-Monday-night oil in a more obscure venue, Carol and the boys must be looking forward to the shift.
