‘The Office Trivia’ with Todd Packer
Saturday, July 30 at 3:30 p.m. at the Funny Bone Comedy Club Restaurant, Glen Allen
Comic David Koechner, perhaps best known as Todd Packer from the hit TV series “The Office,” will be bringing his standup comedy to town for shows on Friday and Saturday, and on Saturday afternoon, he’ll be doing a special “The Office Trivia Show,” which will include behind-the-scenes stories from the show as well as an audience Q&A, and, for some, the opportunity to act out a scene with Todd Packer. Office fans, this is gonna be cool. That’s what she said.
The Taters’ Silver Shindig!
Saturday, July 30 at 8 p.m. at the Tin Pan, Richmond
Without attempting to gush or play favorites, we’ll just simply say there is no group in Richmond, or anywhere else for that matter, quite like The Taters. So, when these guys plan a shindig celebrating their 25th anniversary, you guys really need to make plans to be there.
Check with individual venues for COVID-19 policies.
