Comically Challenged 3

Comically Challenged was originally created by Rus Hames to “challenge” his fellow theater artists to try their hand at stand-up comedy in a friendly environment. While it still serves that purpose, we have also attracted practicing comics looking for a safe place to try new material (or simply play to a less obnoxious crowd than those often found at comedy clubs). The first two outings were a great success, and round 3 looks to continue that trend. Featured performers currently include: Jeff Day, Rachel Klem, Eric Megert, Ann Roy, Rus Hames, Irene Rockwelll, and Jon Kuczynski.

Saturday, May 3 at 8:00 p.m.
