It's Happening Tonight!

Posted by Alison Hallett on Fri, Apr 27, 2012 at 1:14 PM

DECISIONS—The best late-night talk-show host on the air, The Late Late Show's Craig Ferguson is a hell of a stand-up comedian. And while he's known as the voice of Archer and Home Movies' Coach McGuirk, Jon Benjamin is also hilarious. Tonight they're both in town. Separately. This is like Sophie's Choice! But funnier. EH
Craig Ferguson at the Aladdin Theater, 3017 SE Milwaukie, 7 & 10 pm, $42.50-55; Jon Benjamin at the Bagdad Theater, 3702 SE Hawthorne, 9 pm, $15

CONTEST FROM HELL—Karaoke from Hell awards its top prize of $1,000 tonight to one of 15 finalists in its live band karaoke competition, as judged by a panel of local personalities (including the Mercury's own Wm. Steven Humphrey). For those of you non-competitive types, singing after midnight will not be judged (officially, at least, but always internally). MS
Star Theater, 13 NW 6th, 10 pm, $5

AURAL PLEASURE
—You're listening to... Radiolab, WNYC's experiment in auditory storytelling is coming to town. Your stalwart guides through topics scientific and philosophical, Jad Abumrad and Robert Krulwich host a sound-filled evening with dancers, comedian Demetri Martin, and musician Thao Nguyen. Tickets are going fast—just saying. NG
Keller Auditorium, 222 SW Clay, Fri & Sat 8 pm, $35.50
