It’s time to get your last Switch-sponsored laughs in before 2015 comes. The bi-monthly comedy event, hosted by Jacob Breckenridge and Henry Barajas, is taking over the Club Congress stage tonight.

"Honestly, 2014 has been one of the best years in the history of Tucson comedy," Barajas says. "The Switch is not your traditional show. There's a different experience every time."

With a strong improv element, The Switch is known for comedy off the cuff. Barajas says this setup gives the comedians the opportunity to try out different things.

"It gives the comedians to the chance to abandon their sets and try something new," he says. "Sometimes comedians create new material on the spot and it's something they can include in their set."

You can text in your suggestions for proposed topics by texting your ideas to 477-2221 throughout the show. Otherwise, just head to Club Congress tonight for the free event. Other featured comedians for tonight include Tucson and Phoenix area performers like Tyler Ten Haken, Zackry Colston, Nick Joseph, Anthony Desamito, Molly Dean, Chet Coxworthy, Emmet Andrews, Josiah Osego, Jamie Sanderson, Steve Marek, Andrew Horneman, Ben Dietzel, and Mikey Dean. The 21 and over comedy show starts at 9 p.m.
