Host Andrew "Danger" Brynildson is part emcee, part ringmaster. He's prone to challenging audience members to showdowns and, when he loses a bet, always pays up: usually with spare change, junk food, and the occasional vial of his own hair. Brynildson will be moving early this summer, so there are only 10 installments of the long-running series left.
And what better time to catch the MNCS -- this week's lineup includes the dryly hilarious Linda Aarons, the Minneapolis Comedy Death Squad's Wayne Burfeind, the great Gus Lynch, double-threat Zach Coulter, 2008 Funniest Person in the Twin Cities winner Rick Logan, and Acme regulars Tommy Ryman, Tom Steffen, and James Moore.
The Monday Night Comedy Series, 8 p.m. Mondays (obviously) at the Beat Coffeehouse, 1414 W. 28th St., Minneapolis. All ages, $3.
