Theatre 99 is always known for bringing in the laughs for Holy City dwellers; to keep up with the tradition, 2008’s Charleston Comedy Festival Stand-Up Winner Billy Anderson will be performing and having his four bearded friends in tow for The Beards of Comedy.

On Sat. April 18 at 10 p.m. at Theatre 99, Anderson will be joined by Joe Zimmerman, named Charlotte’s Best Stand-Up Comedian by Creative Loafing; Andy Sandford, headliner of a couple of Atlanta’s alternative venues like Star Bar and the Relapse Theater; TJ Young, founder of Loft Comedy and winner of Rooftop Comedy’s Rusty Nail Award; and Dave Stone, a traveled, witty comedian with a diverse Chilean fanbase.

Anderson and the four beards have quite a following of fans and are sure to get a chuckle out of anyone. Tickets are only $10 a pop; call (843) 853-6687 or visit to get them. —Reina Gascon-Lopez
