Do you like the kind of humor that makes you chuckle but doesn’t offend anybody in the process? Of course you do – you are reading this column, after all! Tonight, you can get your family friendly funny bone tickled by the comedic stylings of Tom Gilmore. As seen on Showtime and fresh off a gig on a cruise ship. (“But not the one that had all those problems,” Gilmore quipped.) Gilmore brings his take on Irish-Catholic foibles, mothers-in-law and life to town for the first in a recurring comedy night at the Purple Pit.

“Jazz audiences can appreciate stand-up comedy, too,” he told us. Also appearing will be Rich Gustus, Michele Mortensen and Kofi Thomas. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. and showtime is from 8:30 to 10 at the Purple Pit, 3 Pleasant St. Ext. Tickets are $12. For more information, visit thepurplepit.com or call 832-8876.

If all this March Madness has you starved for some IRL (in real life) hoops, go down to the Green Street Community Center to watch the Recreation Department “A” league basketball championship. A season of fierce competition comes to a head as Tony’s faces off against New Heights Roofing (playing above the rim?) at 7 tonight.
