Mellow Mushroom is once again the official afterparty location for the Charleston Comedy Festival. On Wednesday night, after the Stand-Up Competition at the Farm and the Neckprov/Moral Fixation and Banana Monologues shows at Theatre 99, a small but respectable crowd headed to King Street for some Magic Hat beer (sponsor alert!) and pizza. The Mellow Mushroom guys are keeping the kitchen open late all week, so comedy festers can grab a bite after the last shows.

Last night, we ran into Jason Cooper from Doppelgänger (performing tonight at 9:30 p.m.) and John Brennan from Banana Monologues. Brennan, pictured with Cooper and friend Dolly, was pleased to report that his show had sold out. He’ll perform again tonight in Big Dicktionary and This Is Chucktown. —Stephanie Barna[image-1]
