LOL: Comedy in the Q.C.

Posted By on Tue, Jun 12, 2012 at 4:10 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.

Tony Boswell says he never wanted to be a comedian. It just sorta happened after his aspirations for becoming an engineer, architect, graphic designer and fireman dwindled down to nothingness. Luckily, he's funny and sarcastic enough to make comedy into a lasting (for now anyways) career move. $10. June 12, 8 p.m. The Comedy Zone Lake Norman at Galway Hooker Irish Pub, 17044 Kenton Drive, Cornelius. 704-895-1782. www.lkncomedyzone.com.

Just because the NY comedians who make up the Pink Collar Comedy Tour are somewhat unheard of, doesn't mean you shouldn't give em' a chance. They've made sacrifices to be on the stage in front of you. Big ones. Erin Judge, Carrie Gravenson, Abbi Crutchfield and Kaytlin Bailey will share their stories about how they've abandoned the corporate world for comedy life - and a lesser income. $10. June 14, 8 p.m. The Comedy Zone Fort Mill at Madisons on the Corner, 900 Crossroads Plaza, Fort Mill. 803-802-3990. www.thecomedyzonefortmill.weebly.com.


Jay Pharoah is more than a comedian, he's a hardcore impressionist that's best known for his appearances on Saturday Night Live. If you've ever seen his impressions of folks like Barack Obama, Jay-Z, 50 Cent and Denzel Washington, among others, you'll remember. $20-$25. June 14, 8 p.m.; June 15, 8 p.m. & 10:15 p.m.; June 16, 7 p.m. & 9:30 p.m. The Comedy Zone Charlotte at N.C. Music Factory, 900 N.C. Music Factory Blvd. 980-321-4702. www.cltcomedyzone.com.
