We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you. DONATE

The local crop of stand-up comedians has been producing some seriously funny characters over the last several years, most notably Marcus, whose path of ascendence up the laugh-monger ladder I shouldn’t have to recite. One of the newest talents to emerge from open-mic nights is Cody Eden, a tall, bearded, hippie-looking guy whose easygoing demeanor belies his amazingly sharp wit. He draws from a deep well of subject matter: schizophrenic neighbors, zombies, terminal illnesses, the public-education system and working for the postal service. He insists he doesn’t do drugs and sometimes wears a Utah Jazz cap without irony. Some people’s vision of the world is so skewed that hallucinogens would be superfluous, so bizarre that they make mental health seem like a relative concept. Find out what a hangover and a newborn infant have in common.

He’s also guesting on an upcoming episode of A Damn Movie Podcast, flexing his movie-reviewing muscles.
