THE MAIN THING: 'THE LAST NIGHT AT ORABELLA'S'
8 p.m. The Joint. $20.

The latest laugh-filled offering from the hardest working comedy troupe in Argenta premieres Friday, but unless you already procured tickets, you'll have to wait until Saturday.

The Main Thing (Vicki and Steve Farrell and Brett Ihler in all roles) once again takes viewers on a trip to lil' ol' Dumpster, Ark., where the local honky-tonk is closing up shop. The last night promises to be a doozy, and the house band, Country Wayne Conaway and His Swingin' Sidekicks, provide the tunes. ("Country Wayne" huh? Could that be a sly reference to Wayne County, later Jayne County, of Wayne County & The Electric Chairs renown?)

Once again, this is suitable-for-all-ages comedy, so don't worry about having to sit through any uncomfortable moments with your in-laws or children or pastor or whatever. The show runs Friday and Saturday nights through April 27.
