Keith Lowell Jensen is at it again, raising money on Kickstarter this time to make his new live album “Cats Made of Rabbits” a reality. Or he’s raising money to make actual cats made of rabbits a reality. Either way it’s money well spent.
The album was recorded at a sold out show at the Sacramento Comedy Spot. For $15 you can get a copy of the CD when released, and $25 will get you the DVD copy.
Is it just me or is it hard not to insert “frickin'” into that title?
Moving from its humble digs on Broadway, the Sacramento Comedy Spot — the cityâ€™s premier destination for improv, sketch, and stand-up comedy â€“ opens Friday at its new location in the Marrs Building on 20th and J in the heart of midtown. The Spot has been putting on some of Sacramentoâ€™s best improvised and sketch comedy shows for almost a decade. If you like shows like Saturday Night Live, and Whoâ€™s Line is it Anyway?, this is the comedy club for you. Fridayâ€™s shows feature the Anti-Cooperation League, Sacramentoâ€™s longest running long-form improv group, at 9pm and Throwdown, a competitive improv and stand-up battle, at 10:30pm. Tickets are only $8 per show and are nearly sold out. Shows run Saturday and Sunday as well starting at 8pm.
Check the Sacramento Comedy Spotâ€™s website for information on show times, tickets, and a schedule of classes where you can learn how perform improv, write sketches, and put together a stand-up act worthy of the club circuit. www.saccomedyspot.com

Get out and see some comedy instead of discussing your crappy 401k returns with your neighbor. There are several awesome shows this weekend featuing local talent and special guests from as far away as Daly City. Ooooo, Daly City. I know, it’s totally exotic.
