When writer, comedian, and actor Johnny Pemberton last swung through The Parkway, his creative brand of stand-up split the audience into love him or not yet get him—exactly how fresh comedy should be. Expect many in attendance at that last show to again fill-up the theater, especially since Minneapolis comedy powerhouse Elle Heino opens, as does bookstore comedian/rapper/folk storyteller Zach Coulter. Friday, July 19th, 8 PM. $15 advance, $20 door.Peter Armenian
