Mark Turcotte + Joe Timmins + Mike Levinsky + Tim Hofmann + Paul Hunt
TAKES ALL KINDS | Different strains of stand-up comedy run in polar directions from Portland tonight. The energetic, catlady shtick of PAULA POUNDSTONE is a routine draw at Jonathan’s in Ogunquit (8 pm, $42.50; with a 7 pm show Saturday). While several from the new wave of scruffy dude alt-comics (namely TIM HOFMANN, JOE TIMMINS, MARK TURCOTTE, MIKE LEVINSKY, and PAUL HUNT) collect in what’s shaping up to be a new series at the Prose Gallery in Lewiston. 8 pm; $8, and BYOB at 223 Lisbon St. 207.740.8800.
