Co-presenters Virginia Jones and Dax Jordan have been working hard since April to evolve this monthly stand-up salon with a raucous roster of punchateers. This week's comics and their relevant tweets: MADtv's Matt Braunger ("If I ever decide to commit suicide, it'll be by doing the worm downstairs."), Conan's Tony Camin ("Writing a biography of the HPV virus. Warts and all"), Marcella Arguello ("If there's one thing I hate, it's everything."), Ron Babcock of Why Would You Eat That? gross-out webcast fame and whimsical woman Scout Durwood. That it's being held in a goth club is also rather amusing: further proof that darkness needs light to exist. Complex, 806 E. Colorado St., Glendale; Tue., Aug. 5, 8 p.m.; free; 21 and older. (323) 642-7519, complexla.com.
