January can tend to be a bit light on the entertainment options. People are recovering from the holidays, bands and other entertainers know that money is tight, but that doesn’t mean everything has shut down. Especially when it comes to comedians, who are descending on Salt Lake in mass this month. Which is great, because laughing is the cure for almost everything.
