    Five things to do this weekend: April 20-22
    Women in Comedy Festival all weekend at venues throughout Cambridge, Somerville, Medford and Boston. Ticket prices vary. This festival has exploded in its 10th year, drawing in partners such as HBO, Showtime, NBC and The Onion, and it's harder than ever to select items to highlight - surely headlining shows by Tig Notaro, Wanda Sykes and Emma Willmann qualify, but there's also a staggering run of standup, sketch, improv, live podcasts and workshops to attend.
