It has been one hell of a long, rough week, Seattle. You know what helps caps weeks like this, aside from drinking boxed wine in a bathtub* until you barf?

Laughter. Experiencing something so weird and awesome that it shocks you out of your troubled head for awhile. In that regard, you're in luck: This Sunday night at 7:30 p.m. is the anniversary show of Weird and Awesome with Emmett Montgomery at the Annex Theatre, a variety show fueled by spectacle, comedy, talent, and the amazing discomfort of watching people do things outside of their comfort zone, like crying on stage. (Kidding!)

Sunday's lineup will feature singing clown-dancer Jenna Bean Veatch! Puppeteer Kyle Loven! Comedian Kermet Apio! House Weirdoes Travis Clarke and Kevin Vogt! Beloved yellow journalist Brendan Kiley! Lovely prizes and jokes from tween prodigy Barbara Holm!

Sunday, June 3, 7:30 p.m., $5-$10, Annex Theatre. Go laugh your ass off and help celebrate the anniversary of this freakish flipper baby of a variety show. You won't regret it.

*Easy cleanup.
