A whole lotta MICF Preview Trial Runs going on! Christina Davis and Jarred Keane both did large chunks of their upcoming MICF solo shows, Chris Radburn and new comic Dane Hedgepath tested some new material, MC Oliver Phommavanh kept it all ticking along and Eddie Ifft dropped in as a surprise guest to try out some new stuff as well.
