Before you fill up on turkey and stuffing and can't move your extremities, come out to The Amsterdam Comedy Festival for three kick-ass days of laughs from some of DFW's best comedians. It's all free, so don't worry about wrecking your pie budget.
The shows are November 22-24 at The Amsterdam Bar (located at 831 Exposition Ave. in Dallas), and each night kicks off at 10 p.m. The acts include Dallas Observer's Best Comedian of 2012, Clint Werth, the Denton Comedy Collective's Alex Semlser and local favorite Paul Varghese. An amazing 33 comics will perform over the weekend, and local comedian Dan Danzy will host all nights. Here's the line-up:
