[image-1]We don’t know how it happened, but the last two days of Charleston Comedy Fest are already upon us. And if you’ve procrastinated in getting your tickets for tonight’s shows, fret not. There’s still some great performances left to see.
Headliner Doug Benson is sure to sell out — as of now less than 30 tickets remain, so move fast if you want one of them. But if you didn’t get a ticket and you’re in the mood for some stand-up comedy, might we suggest Woolfe Street Playhouse’s offerings for the evening. Starting at 8 p.m., New York City comedians Lenny Marcus and Carmen Lynch will take the stage. And they are pros, y’all. Between the two of them, they’ve worked with some of the best in comedy, like Amy Schumer and Louie Anderson. Plus, they’ve both appeared on The Late Show David Letterman.
Following Marcus and Lynch, you can see some of the best up-and-coming regional acts at the Stand-up Competition Winners Showcase at 10 p.m. The show features the three winners from this fall’s Stand-up Competition and is hosted by Dusty Slay.
If you were hankering for some rockabilly crudeness sung by two lovely ladies, we regret to inform you that Reformed Whores have sold out. But they aren’t the only musical comedy act of the evening. Pop Roulette and North Coast both perform their comedy via song and will take over the Theatre 99 stage at 9 p.m. Pop Roulette takes audience suggestions and performs, you guessed it, pop songs with them. And North Coast, well, they’re just your average hip-hop comedy duo.
Over at PURE Theatre, Comedy Marathon featuring Bucky, Cats Hugging Cats, and Magnet Theater Touring Company only has 30 tickets left so get on that. If you don’t get the golden ticket for that marathon, fear not. Another marathon will bring the laughs at 9:30 p.m. Upstairs Gallery is a comedy troupe from Chicago; AirWolf talks about your worst living situation imaginable; and Squirm & Germ raps about being pregnant in da club — what’s a girl to do?
And if you’re in the mood for some improv, check out Improv Marathon with Coalition Theatre, Alchemy Comedy, and Bonecracker when they hit up 34 West at 9:30 p.m. This show has very limited availability. And later at Theatre 99, it’s the All Star Jam, where there’s no telling who’s going to show up.
