Let your geek flag fly

Grab a $2 PBR draft, $3 Bud pint or $4 Magners cider bottle and put your love for your nerdy childhood TV shows to good use at Project 891 Theatre Co.'s TGIF Trivia Night, where your knowledge of otherwise completely useless factoids about "Family Matters," "Perfect Strangers" and "Full House" could win you themed prizes. 7:30 p.m. $5.

DO

Homegrown hilarity

UP Comedy Club, 230 W. North Ave. 312-662-4562

Slacker comedian Kyle Kinane—a Chicago-area native who's been seen on "Last Call with Carson Daly" and BBC's "The World Stands Up" and is a regular opener for comedians such as Patton Oswalt and Brian Posehn—headlines as part of the TBS Just for Laughs Chicago festival. 10:30 p.m. $25.

R-rated puppets

Bank of America Theater, 18 W. Monroe St. 800-775-2000

Creator Brian Henson—yes, Jim Henson's son—joins the cast for the opening of "Stuffed and Unstrung,"which features adults-only puppet adventures in improv comedy. Audience suggestions fuel the action, which is projected on to two huge screens and the puppeteers—working in full view of the audience—add to the comedy. 7:30 p.m. $25-$60.
