Cool, it will be nice to see some B and possibly A level acts rather than the Cs and Ds that are usally at Galway Hooker.

I am skeptic as the Blumenthal theatres have worked just nice and we only have a handful or so scheduled to come at any point of time to those.

But here to the hope that this club gets quality comedians and the volume of them like the Improv chain, Goodnights (Raliegh), etc...

I read Sinbad will be playing at the Joyfest this summer at Carowinds.

There is also a Comedy Zone in Fort Mill. If you get on their email list there are a lot of specials there, even some free show giveaways for the lesser known acts.

I took their workshop once, but had to drop out...I learned alot, and met John Witherspoon...(father on Friday)...

It was fun...comedy is such a release...

Paridy is such a release...

Comedy is one of the last venues where you can still speak your mind on things and not worry about the 'offending people stuff'...

But there's a fine line between 'insulting' and 'current'...
