COMEDY | Comedy Benefit Shows 

Two comedy shows this week are aiming to fill seats for good causes. Rochester troupe Polite Ink Sketch & Improv on Saturday, November 11, will throw its first "Oh Watta Night" benefit show for Willow Domestic Violence Center. The comedy group — Michael Anthony, Don Beechner, Corrie Carter, Karen Craft, Bolan Graham, and Reuben Tapp — will be joined by Flower City Vaudeville for a night of improv, naturally with audience interaction. "Oh Watta Night" starts at 7:30 p.m. at Geva Theatre Center (75 Woodbury Boulevard). $15 advance; $20 at the door. All proceeds go to Willow.;

And on Wednesday, November 15, Comedy @ The Carlson will host a "Comics for Relief" night for Puerto Rico recover efforts — six weeks after Hurricane Maria, most of the island is still without electricity, making it the longest blackout in US history. The night will feature sets by Steven Rogers, Joe Bruno, Todd Youngman, and more. Hosted by RJ McCarthy. Comedy @ The Carlson (50 Carlson Road) is working with InterVol for the evening. 7:30 p.m.; tickets are $15. 426-6339;
