Tired of your upstairs neighbor practicing acoustic guitar? Watched everything on Netflix and it's only Wednesday? Even though you can't leave your house, you can attend a comedy show. Comedians across the country are stuck at home too, and they've started virtual versions of their local shows and workout sessions. Join their zoom meeting and you're at a show supporting local artists, and also likely seeing a few folks from far away! You're not required to talk at these if you don't want to, but if you get the itch you're welcome to join in. Some of these folks are running multiple events a week, but I've listed their main shows below:

Connecticut Virtual Writer's Group daily at 7pm EST, hosted by Ham Clancy and Brian Barbecue EVERY day! On Zoom 308 309 634
