8:00PM – Scared SetLess: Improvised Stand-up ($5) [Rated – R]
Stand-up, more often than not, is crafted before being brought in front of an audience where it is then perfected. The skill in stand-up is making these well-prepared bits sound as though they naturally flow from the brain of the performer. This Friday, comics from in and around the Upstate will have to improvise bits incorporating never-before-seen ideas projected on the wall behind them.
Because of the potential for language and mature topics, we strongly recommend leaving the kids at home for this one.
Friday’s second show features the all-star cast of Local Legends doing improv based on the true stories of returning guest, Art Sturtevant. Art is a stalwart of the regional comedy scene, performing stand-up all around the southeast. Art started doing stand-up in the 1980s then took a brief hiatus in 1985 until January of 2010 when he reignited his love of performing. Though he lives in Asheville, he can regularly be seen at the No Expectations open mic at Coffee Underground and open mics all over western North Carolina. This Friday we’re excited to host him again as the Local Legend, especially the members of Alchemy who weren’t around for much of the 80s.
