Though described as an alternative comedy show, Punch Drunk Comedy is just the sort of smiling, ham-fisted comedy that twentysomethings have come to love and cherish. Bare Knuckle Comedy, the brains behind PDC based in both St. Louis and Chicago, comes out to play tonight. It's the sort of diamond in the rough that's not often found in St. Louis; for instance, the best video from its website is an ad for New Belgium Fat Tire Ale, which amusingly contrasts the reality of riding one's cruiser bike like a drunken, leering lout against the fresh, dapper gentlemanly image the brand pitches. See for yourself at Cicero's (6691 Delmar Boulevard, University City; 314-862-0009). The seventeen-and-up show begins at 8 p.m., and tickets are $5.
