Merriam-Webster's Dictionary defines a hootenanny as "a gathering at which folksingers entertain, often with the audience joining in." Local comedy troupe Massive Creativity is presenting its version of The Hootenanny as part of its "Really Big Show" series at Helios. The show features a guest monologist who'll share a true story inspired by an audience suggestion, which then inspires scenes performed by the ensemble. That will inspire another true monologue by the storyteller, and, well, you see the pattern, yes? Today's storyteller is comedian and occasional Press contributor Eric A.T. Dieckman. 8 p.m. 411 Westheimer. For information, visit www.massivecreativity.com. $10.
