Those in need of a Far Side fix now that Gary Larson retired may find suitable comic methadone in the convoluted ramblings of Jake Johannsen. His disheveled, scatterbrained-nerd approach finds astonished mystery in what to most of us is just daily life. Of late, he’s become increasingly sheveled—wire-rim glasses replaced by contacts—but the beauty make-over can’t hide the giddy inner geek. Tonight at 8:30 & 10:30 p.m., Saturday at 7, 9, & 11 p.m., and Sunday at 8 p.m. at the Comedy Cafe, 1520 K St. NW. $15. (202) 638-5653. (Dave Nuttycombe)
