Twincy is turning into such a comedy town that comics you’d expect at the bigger comedy joints are now turning up at intimate venues like the stage at Sisyphus Brewing. Case in point: Nick Griffin, who has appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Conan, The Late Late Show, Letterman (11 times!), and even in his own half-hour Comedy Central special will do two sets at the tap room. Friday, January 4th, Saturday, January 5th. 8 PM. $10. —Peter Armenian
