Shove It, Taxman

From this moment, you have less than a month to fill out all of those obnoxious tax forms and file for the appropriate (necessary) extensions as you scratch your head in stupefaction, wondering how it is you could possibly owe the IRS even more money than last year. It's quite possible that the IRS is the most hated organization in the country--even more than those people who put the "do not remove" labels on your mattresses. If all of those lines, schedules and charts are making you dizzy, and you are contemplating living off the grid rather than filling out one more box (or if you still haven't even started your taxes yet), take the night off and head over to Pocket Sandwich Theatre (5400 E. Mockingbird Lane, Suite 119) for a night of rambunctious and raunchy entertainment as 4 Out of 5 Doctors present Up Your IRS. Revel with kindred souls as the laughs begin at 7:30 p.m., but be sure to get there early as seating and food service (featuring a full menu, beer and wine) start at 6:15 p.m. Tickets are $12 for Friday through Sunday night performances.
