Paid or Pain with Lisa Ann

Sunday, March 13
11:00PM - 12:30AM

The Hideout
617 Congress Ave


Paid or Pain, hosted by Lisa Ann and Jay Nog, rewards comics who win over the crowd -- and inflicts pain (doled out by the show's House Dominatrix) on those who don't. You won't want to miss your chance to be a part of this completely one-of-a-kind comedy gameshow, where it's up to the audience to decide comedian's fates.
