After nearly closing its doors forever this past June, venerable Springfield comedy club Donnie B’s (3455 Freedom Dr.) has survived to celebrate its 20th anniversary this month. The club, which was saved from going out of business at the 11th hour in June by an anonymous $20,000 loan, will begin its new season with an engagement by comic Greg Hahn, known to comedy fans for his frequent spots on popular syndicated radio program, “The Bob & Tom Show,” as well as guest appearances on “Late Night with Conan O’Brien” and, um, “Star Search.” Hahn will perform Friday, Oct. 5, and Saturday, Oct. 6, at 7:30 p.m. For tickets and further information, visit or call 391-5653.
