Lo and Behold.
Recently, a man in Oakland was trapped between two buildings for four hours before rescuers could free him. How did he get in that predicament, you ask? He was reportedly trying to jump across the buildings in an attempt to woo a lady.

Literal Cats at RBC (Free)
Not literally cats, this is host Clint Werth’s new recurring stand-up comedy show. This go-round, Tyler Simpson, Aj Faji, DDT and Brad LaCour will be the joke-teller on hand. Or maybe just their cats? I’m literally not sure.
