FRIDAY LOWDOWN: A Grand Opening for Eureka's New Comedy Club

In-N-Out, Schmin-N-Schmout... Eureka now has a comedy club!

Tonight's big headliner is none other than veteran road comic Billy Wayne Davis -- you can take Billy for a test drive in the Conan clip above, then find full details on tonight's show, and/or other Friday joys in your Lowdown listings below.
