LOL: Comedy in the Q.C.

Posted By on Tue, Apr 10, 2012 at 5:05 PM

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.

* Lynne Koplitz, a former host of Food Network's How to Boil Water, doesn't sound like someone to trust in the kitchen. Despite gaining some culinary experience on the show, her stand-up just seems like a safer career move - that's also less likely to go up in smoke. April 11-12, 8 p.m.; April 13, 8 p.m. and 10:15 p.m.; April 14, 7 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. $12-$17. 900 Seaboard St., Suite B3, Charlotte. 980-321-4702. www.cltcomedyzone.com.


* Grammy-winning comedian, author and regular contributor to the Daily Show, Lewis Black is a lean, mean politics-bashing machine. Outraged over our government's decisions, he's adamant in his social critiquing (and shouting). Black won't shy away from labeling high ranking powers-that-be as blithering idiots. And we wouldn't be surprised if noone in upcoming elections, gets a vote from him. In Black's world, Republicans have "bad ideas" and Democrats have "no ideas." He rants about all sides of the political spectrum. April 14, 8 p.m. $50 and up. Ovens Auditorium, 2700 E. Independence Blvd., Charlotte. 704-372-3600. www.ovensauditorium.com.

* Charlotte-based comedy troupe The Chuckleheads dish out a heavy dose of improv. Hence the title of their upcoming show, The Chuckleheads' Comedy Improv Musical Variety Extravaganza. How's that for saying they touch on a little bit of everything? To reserve tickets in advance, visit www.planetimprov.com. April 14, 8 p.m. $10 in advance; $15 at the door. Dilworth Neighborhood Grill, 911 E. Morehead St., Charlotte.
