Of all the things to be thankful for this holiday weekend, the ability to laugh in spite of the year’s events has to be at the top of the list. At least it is for the folks at Crushers of Comedy, who host the Give Thanks for Laughter standup showcase this weekend with a cornucopia of popular Sonoma County comics hitting the stage. The lineup includes homegrown talents Juan Carlos and Cody Smit, as well as Bay Area and Sacramento comedians Steve Ausburne, Josh Argyle and Charlie Adams. The laughs happen on Saturday, Nov. 25, at the Laugh Cellar, 5755 Mountain Hawk Way, Santa Rosa. Doors, 5pm; show, 7pm. $28. 707.843.3824.
