THURSDAY

THE FUNKY DIVAS OF COMEDY: Baltimore's Ayanna Dookie (who has an amusing Beyonce routine) hosts a night of serious funny peppered with serious attitude as dished out by "Funniest Mom in America" Meshelle, stand-up comedian Alycia Cooper (originally from Maryland, but currently working in Los Angeles) and D.C.-based stand-up comedian Erin Jackson.

GHOST BUSTERS: Something strange in the neighborhood? That's OK, we ain't afraid of no ghost.
