LOL: Comedy in the Q.C.

Posted By on Tue, Apr 3, 2012 at 11:14 AM

Listed below is a roundup of CL's top picks for comedy shows in Charlotte this week. Hopefully, they keep you entertained and, more importantly, laughing out loud.

* Mo Alexander blames his strict religious upbringing on his career move into comedy. Who knew catholic school could have such positive effects? Alexander is slated to release his debut CD - titled Unscrewing Your Cranium - this month. It's being described as, "45 minutes of insanity from the early Mo period." $10. April 3, 7 p.m. The Comedy Zone Lake Norman at Galway Hooker Pub, 17044 Kenton Drive, Cornelius. 704-895-1782. www.lkncomedyzone.com.

* Asking a comedian for psychological advice doesn't seem like the brightest of ideas. After all, they're in the biz of picking fun at pretty much everything, so getting a serious (and sane) response is out of the question. Oddly, comedian Scotty K counseled troubled teens before plunging into stand-up. His PG-act is blends of random observations (basically anything he feels like talking about), improv and music. $10-$15. April 4-5, 8 p.m.; April 6, 8 p.m. & 10:15 p.m.; April 7, 7 p.m. & 9:30 p.m. The Comedy Zone Charlotte at NC Music Factory, 900 Seaboard St., Suite B3. 980-321-4702. www.cltcomedyzone.com.

* Jerry Seinfeld can't top the critical success of his TV show about nothing and he's not even trying. Following his stint in Bee Movie, the star began producing a not-so-buzzworthy reality series, The Marriage Ref. Last we heard, a disgruntled contestant on the show was blaming Seinfeld for his failed marriage. (You know, because going onto reality TV should have fixed the relationship probs). We're just excited that we can call Seinfeld a homewrecker now. Currently on a stand-up tour stopping into Ovens Auditorium, Seinfeld has more to worry about than name-calling. Wait, he's a king of comedy. What could he possibly have to worry about? Oh yeah, nothing. $49 and up. April 5, 7 p.m. Oven Auditorium, 2700 E. Independence Blvd. 704-372-3600. www.ovensauditorium.com.
