LOL: Comedy in the Q.C.

Posted By on Wed, Mar 14, 2012 at 9:00 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.

• In addition to his joking maneuvers, stand-up comedian Midnight Swinger uses his overall appearance to humor his audience. He resembles a goofy Las Vegas performer from a few eras back. Fashion makeover time? Oh yeah. $10-$15. March 14-15, 8 p.m.; March 16-17, 8 p.m. and 10:15 p.m. The Comedy Zone Charlotte, 900 Seaboard St., Suite B3. 980-321-4702.


• Comedian Gabriel Iglesias isn’t fat, he’s "fluffy" — or so he says. Disqualified from NBC's Last Comic Standing in 2006, Iglesias went on to earn the title of "Comedian of the Year" and a TV stint (Gabriel Iglesias Presents Stand Up Revolution) from Comedy Central. Currently on his "Stand Up Revolution Tour," Iglesias pays a visit to Ovens Auditorium. His comedy act consists of parodies, storytelling and right-on imitations. $42. March 17, 7 p.m. Ovens Auditorium, 2700 E. Independence Blvd. 704-372-3600.

• Local comedy troupe Robot Johnson delivers sketches that are funny with or without one of the bar's specialty drinks — created and named after Robot Johnson characters. $10. March 17, 9 p.m. Roux, 3306 N. Davidson St., Suite A.
