Time: 9 p.m. Information: 267-639-4528 or www.bootandsaddlephilly.com.

A couple of comedians sitting around talking

They re-create the experience - sans comic books, alas - at the Prince Music Theater, 1412 Chestnut St. Time: 8 p.m. Tickets: $20. Information: 215-893-1999 or princemusictheater.org.
