Here are the events and shows that we recommend this week:

ATLANTA'S BEST AMATEUR COMEDY presents: 10 YR ANNIVERSARY SHOW! @ Star Community Bar
"What started as a no-bullshit room run by two grade-A bullshitters quickly earned its reputation as a first-rate open mic for comedians who care about improving. The more quality comedians took to Star Bar, the more Star Bar became known for quality comedians. With each year, each Atlanta expat that got started there, each album recorded there, each celebrity drop-in, the venue's reputation has solidified further." - Austin L. Ray via Creative Loafing
