In the '80s when sitcoms were cranking out shiny, perfect nuclear families, Grace Under Fire's storyline revolved around a blue-collar family headed by a single, working mother. Title character BRETT BUTLER brought her Southern charm and Georgia sense of humor to viewers everywhere, and now she's bringing new material back to her hometown. A performer who describes herself as "so Southern I'm related to myself," this fiery comedian is a must-see. $15-$18. 8 p.m. Laughing Skull Lounge, 878 Peachtree St. 877-523-3288. www.vortexcomedy.com.
