This weekend has a whole new level of funny rockin' the Yakima Valley. Craig Gass, Jason Stewart and the Manic Thunder Improv Troupe tore up the Yakima Laugh Lounge Friday night with a sold-out room and was on its way to doing it again Saturday.

Friday's show opened with Manic Thunder taking the stage with their off-the-cuff comedy using suggestions from the audience such as propane, herpes and "To Catch A Predator" in which they hope to track and catch the Alien Hunting Species in great Chris Hanson fashion.

Special guest comedian Jason Stewart followed, bringing his comedic outlook on money and fear factor, to surprises during sex (just to name a few).

Craig Gass ended the night with his more than hourlong set filled with memorable stories about TV, rock, radio, and Seahawks football! Mixing in timing, jokes and impressions that are unmatched, he proves that he is one of the hardest and funniest comics out there today!
