Regulars at Comedy Coven's monthly shows at the Robin Theatre may have cleared their agenda for the third Tuesday night of the month, but hold it — this month, the witty witches host their evening of occult humor one week early. The comedy trio, comprising Tricia Chamberlain, Stephanie Onderchanin and Emily Syrja, face the Ghosts of Depressions Past, Present and Future in this holiday-themed evening of standup and sketches. Joining them are guest performers Lauren Booza, Justin Covington, Ne Loveslife and Abby Veitengruber. $7 adv./$10 at door, if available. The Robin Theatre, 1105 S. Washington Ave., Lansing. comedycoven.com/shows.
