BNW, you don’t look a day over 59

Bands have mostly stopped releasing “best of” compilations in the download age, but that’s not stopping Brave New Workshop from pulling out the deep cuts to kick off its 60th-anniversary season of comedy. “Age Against the Machine: BNW’s Greatest Hits” dips into the vault for a still relevant, if not necessarily recent, collection of sketches, performed by improvvers Lauren Anderson, Denzel Belin, Ryan Nelson, Tom Reed and Melanie Wehrmacher. (8 p.m. Fri., 5 & 8 p.m. Sat., Brave New Workshop, 824 Hennepin Av. S., Mpls., $25-$34, 612-332-6620, braveneworkshop.com)
