What's up in Lansing: Controver-she and more

Here's what's going on in town today


Good day on this sunny Tuesday.

Lansing's trio of comedic witches appear on stage at the Robin Theatre once again for their monthly comedy show. This month, Comedy Coven presents Controver-she, a show the occult-themed group describes as "a celebration of the scandalous, profane, and deliciously petty." The trio, made up of Tricia Chamberlain, Emily Syrja and Stephanie Onderchanin, is joined by Grace Green, Ne Loveslife, Joe Payne and Sam Rager for an evening of sketches, standup, music and more. Tickets can be purchased online; a limited number of tickets may be available at the door. 8 p.m. $10/$7 adv. The Robin Theatre, 1105 S. Washington Ave., Lansing. comedycoven.com.
