Do It. 'Parks and Recreation' at Largo.

I didn't like Parks and Recreation when it first premiered on TV. Everything felt stunted and it seemed like too much of a rehash of The Office, from (the hot) Rashida Jones character to Amy Poehler's Michael Scott-like demeanor.

So I gave up on for a bit, until I was convinced enough by the end of its first season by loyalists that it had finally found its place. They were right, and now in its second season, Parks and Rec has totally hit its stride. There's just a great chemistry among all the cast members, and they all play off each other really well and connect on hilarious levels. (Go Andy and April!)

Which is why this live show at Largo at the Coronet tomorrow night is sure to be an entertaining time. The cast of the show is set to hit the live stage with Tig Notaro, whom admittedly I don't know much about, but is apparently a comedian who's appeared on the Sarah Silverman Show. There'll be a Q&A with the cast, and basically everyone, including Poehler, Jones, (the always spot-on) Aziz Ansari and Aubrey Plaza, is expected to appear. Don't forget to put on your nice suit--gotta look fly!

Largo at the Coronet is located at 366 N. La Cienega Blvd. The show on Saturday starts at 8pm and is $25.
