It’s a Bob Marley weekend!
Just don’t get the two confused.
At The Egg is Bob Marley, comedian. Straight outta Maine, funnyman Marley’s long stand-up comedy career spans 11 CDs, 4 DVDs (including his new CD/DVD set, “Drop It Haahd!”), more than 100 television appearances and even movie roles in such films as 1999’s “The Boondock Saints,” and last year’s sequel, “The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day.” Showtime is 8pm, and tix are $22.50.
