Open mike stand-up

The main movie house has quietly become one of the best comedy stages in town thanks to some savvy bookings. (Comedic heavy hitters such as Lizz Winstead and Patton Oswalt, and more recently, Kristin Schaal, who played the stalker in HBO's "Flight of the Conchords" have performed there.) But for a real deal, hit Saturday's free open mike in the intimate Grill, featuring as many as 20 local comics who hit the stage in quick succession. Once in a blue moon, a headliner from the main room makes his or her way over for a quick appearance after a show.
