'LITTLE ROCK AND A HARD PLACE'
8 p.m. The Joint. $20.


It's a classic comedy conceit: The protagonist dies and arrives at that big pearly-gated community in the sky only to learn that in order to enter, he or she will have to go back to the mortal plane and make things right. Such is the story at the heart of "Little Rock and a Hard Place," an original comedy by The Joint's in-house comedy team, The Main Thing (Steve and Vicki Farrell and Brett Ihler).

The show ran last fall and earned raves from our publisher, Alan Leveritt, who described it as "a witty and at times hilarious tour of the twin cities' downtowns during their nadirs as Steve [Farrell]'s character tries to win holy points by saving Argenta. The writing shows a real knowledge of the political and cultural nuances of the relationship between the two cities, which is a surprise, because the couple and their extended families are fairly new to Central Arkansas. And it's real funny."

"Little Rock and a Hard Place" will have a limited run — Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. through Nov. 16 — so don't dawdle.

    You've got to figure that a band from frozen-ass Winnipeg is just gonna be way gnarlier and tougher than a band from some sun-kissed tropical clime where people wear tank tops and flip-flops year-round.
