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.
There might be a reason Jodi White doesn't have a ring on her finger. The comedian - who started doing stand-up after one, two... uh, three divorces - is known for rattling on about her failed relationships. But White's not bitter. If anything, she seems to be over her failed attempts at matrimony. Now, she's able to laugh at the misfortunes, which have led her to a whole new realm of disappointment: middle-age dating. Watch out, Charlotte bachelors! Any guy wooing Ms. White could easily find himself a bit in her act, which also targets her close friends and family, including an out-of-the-closet son. $10-$12. Dec. 26-27, 8 p.m., Dec. 28, 8 p.m. & 10:15 p.m. and Dec. 29, 7 p.m. & 9:30 p.m. The Comedy Zone Charlotte, 900 N.C. Music Factory Blvd., Suite B3. 980-321-4702. www.cltcomedyzone.com.
Steve Burr isn't German, but that hasn't stopped him from testing his language skills onstage. Making fun of pretty much anything and anyone, the folks in Deutschland aren't exempt - even if they are all the way across the pond. Burr, who often does imitations of the random folks he crosses paths with, finds the humor in everyday occurrences and possible disaster scenarios. $10. Dec. 28-29, 8 p.m. & 10:15 p.m. The Comedy Zone Fort Mill at Madisons on the Corner, 900 Crossroads Plaza. 803-802-3990. www.thecomedyzonefortmill.weebly.com.
