What we're about

A great place to find live Asheville's live comedy performances and other local comedy fans!

We'll be posting all the Asheville-area stand-up comedy shows in the area (assuming I know about them). We've met several of you already, and we'd love to meet more of you!

Asheville has a lot of great comedy. There's touring comics performing in larger venues. Asheville is also home to a thriving local scene with great local comics performing in smaller venues and opening for touring comics. There is also a great selection of open mics, so if you ever have the itch to try something out, you'll have plenty of opportunities.

LaZoom Comedy: Robby Slowik

LaZoom Room Bar & Gorilla

$8.00

Meetup members pay only $8 at the door and hangout after the show to meet Robby and Casey, but please let me know you are in the group. Robby Slowik has been called “a national treasure and comedy’s most talented talent” by an anonymous reddit account that is definitely not controlled by Robby Slowik. Stop implying that it is. And while those claims are true, it took time to get there. After starting comedy in Tampa, Fl (The cultural capital of the world) Robby moved to L.A. (The Tampa of California) before settling in New York City where he does stand-up most nights. Aside from clubs and venues nationwide, Robby has done stand-up on Conan (TV!) and numerous festivals such as The Great American Comedy Festival and Laughing Skull. He has also written for TV including working with Jon Stewart on his HBO project, as well as shows for IFC, MTV, and Comedy Central. You can see where Robby is performing if he remembered to update the “shows” tab of his website this month. Featuring Davidson Boswell and Casey Balsham Hosted by TBA ages 18+ Tickets $8 advance, $12 day of https://www.eventbrite.com/e/lazoom-comedy-robby-slowik-tickets-64190083267

Disclaimer Comedy Open Mic

The One Stop at Asheville Music Hall

The show starts at 9:30, and there is no cover. Anyone wanting to perform needs to sign up by 9:00 PM, and will get five minutes on stage. The order of sign-up is not necessarily the order of the show. Come enjoy hit or miss comedy every Wednesday. For information about the longest continuously running comedy open mic in WNC, please see Disclaimer Stand-Up Lounge on Facebook. Disclaimer Stand-Up Lounge prides itself on a little something called “Excellence in Stage Craft, Innovation, Crowd Pleasure and Excellence”. We strive to constantly upgrade the running of the open mic, and we often scrap these upgrades because they’re often enormous failures. (Please see Chatroulette projected on large screen beside performer” in some future discussion tab).

Comedy at Fleetwood's: Katherine Jessup

Fleetwood's

$7.00

Meetup members pay just $7 at the door and hang out after the show for a meet and greet with the comedians! Katherine Jessup hopes you like her comedy, but it's cool if you don't. (You probably will though.) Commanding stages with the winsome charm of your slightly too honest best friend, her comedy's been described as sublime, profoundly relatable, and also available for birthday parties. She's performed at festivals across the country, including Bentzen Ball, Women in Comedy, Blue Whale, Seattle International Comedy Competition, and Asheville's own Laugh Your Asheville Off. She is a regular at clubs and theaters like the DC Improv and Kennedy Center, and is most proud of encouraging friends and colleagues to wear truly ridiculous sneakers. Featuring Jacob H. Koll ages 18+ Tickets $7 advance, $10 day of https://www.eventbrite.com/e/comedy-at-fleetwoods-katherine-jessup-tickets-64764429151
