Trying to explain why comedy is funny is a task fraught with annoyance. There's just no telling what some people will or won't laugh at. Case in point: New York's Todd Barry (right), whose 2004 CD, Falling Off the Bone, was recorded live at NYC's Pianos, a tiny Lower East Side venue with patrons that laugh hysterically at some of the milder jokes and let the funniest ones go by with just a giggle (some of the best cracks on the CD are those at the expense of said audience). With his dry, unhurried delivery, Barry's an odd performer, a guy who seems to have accidentally found himself on a stage telling stories about everything from being unhealthily obsessed with music to weird experiences on airplanes. It's cold out, people; you need a laugh. See Monday Calendar.



Ahh, trick-or-treating. We remember the time, oh so many years ago, when some guy dished out full boxes of Twinkies upon the lucky late-comers like us. We sped quickly around the corner, giggling with glee, stuffing our faces until we were sick to our stomachs. Oh, it was grand! But with a skyrocketing obesity epidemic among children these days, it wouldn't be in our best interest to push all those caloric artery-cloggers onto the frisky tykes, now would it? Hear are some alternatives: art supplies, sugar-free gum, stickers, whistles or temporary tattoos.



This week it's a kid's dream come true. You get to wear costumes, everyone is pretending to be superheroes or pirates, and candy and scares are dispensed with a smile: What's not to love? Well, rather than stay home with the non-scary Xbox 360, we suggest Nearby Nature's 10th annual Haunted Hike. From Rico Raccoon to Grandma Spider (pictured), kids and adults alike will find out about fascinating nocturnal creatures from costumed representatives. Not only does this encourage some exercise, it makes a lot more sense than sitting at home watching Animal Planet. See Friday Calendar.



University Theater kicks off its second season with two international one act plays: Chitra and The Arabian Night. Rabindranath Tagore's Chitra tells the story of a king's daughter — raised as a boy — who falls in love with a man ... with all madcap gender identity issues ensuing. German playwright Roland Schimmelpfennig'sThe Arabian Night is comprised of several surreal scenes each played out by five individuals (including Lilli Turner and Dusty Bodeen, right) enclosed in an apartment block on the hottest night in history. In one scene, a man imagines himself trapped in a bottle of cognac; in another, a woman's narcoleptic amnesia reveals both vulnerability and deception. Each slice of psychodrama interweaves into the next until the climax, where dreams are either realized, or not. See Thursday, Oct. 26 Calendar.



You've probably noticed that each day it's getting darker earlier, but come this Sunday, our daylight saving ends, dropping the sun over the horizon as early as 5 pm! Advice: Get thee to the last Last Friday Artwalk of the year where you can actually see the sidewalk you walk on (see Best of Eugene staff picks for more on the subject). Lots of mayhem, as usual, but with two can't-miss openings at Better Yet and Infinity Mercantile, it's all the more reason to dine at Laughing Planet (Best Meal Under $7) or fill your sweet tooth with Sweet Life (Best Bakery/Sweets), both of 'em within a stone's throw away. See Friday Calendar.
