A com­edy tonight

Pasatiempo - - RAMDOM ACTS -

Stand-up com­edy is a risky per­for­mance ven­ture: It’s you fac­ing a sea of peo­ple who ex­pect to laugh. Ei­ther you’re funny or you fail, and a set that of­fends is gen­er­ally con­sid­ered more suc­cess­ful than a set that bores, which means be­ing a mem­ber of the au­di­ence is also some­thing of a risk. Of­ten, funny is in the familiar — and familiar is in­trin­sic to Meow Wolf’s Lulz Com­edy se­ries, which be­gan a year ago as an ex­per­i­ment to see whether Santa Fe is fer­tile comic ter­ri­tory. The lat­est in­stall­ment, Big­ger, Bet­ter, Faster, Longer! ,at Sky­light (139 W. San Fran­cisco St., 505-982-0775) at 8 p.m. on Satur­day, Feb. 28, fea­tures Joser Maes­tas, Your Boy Re­flex, Casey Haymes, Meg Burns, Joseph Zyer, and Maxwell Lu­cas — all res­i­dents of North­ern New Mex­ico. For many of the co­me­di­ans, the se­ries presents the first lo­cal op­por­tu­nity to try out their stand-up sets in front of au­di­ences. Tick­ets for the twenty-one-and-over show ($10) are avail­able from www.sky­light­santafe.com and at the door. — J.L.
