Around the time that LaughFest began nearly 10 years ago, a lot of folks began to take notice of our local comedy scene. Not only had a few comedy-focussed clubs popped up via our dedicated spaces (Dr. Grin’s) to even pop-up nights at area theatrical companies (Dog Story Theatre), a few of our local comics, who had cut their teeth on area stages, were now busy starting their careers as they toured around the country from comedy clubs to college campuses.
Fast forward to today, comedy is everywhere you look around us and we continue to welcome so many different comedy acts to stages all over the city.
One fresh addition to our area’s entertainment options is The Comedy Project
— a dedicated comedy theatre showcasing improv, sketch, and comedy variety shows, a comedy training center, and private event space.
Debuting in 2019 in our city, this westside club has become such a popular destination for fans that it is no shock that, during the last days before the big man in the red velvet suit starts invading homes with toys, comes the debut at The Comedy Project a Roast of Santa
So fans and non-fans alike can gather this Saturday for a night of laughter as Santa takes a break from work to hear what’s on the minds of the troupe at The Comedy Project as they roast the Dickens out of him in a no holds barred comic buffet of insights and laugh-out-loud confessions.
The Roast of Santa (featuring Mike Logan) may be a brand new bag for jolly ol’ Saint Nic, but for locals, we have been enjoying the laughter all year long from our comedy stars found on stage at The Comedy Project.
And p.s. Santa, try to have a sense of humor and go easy on The Comedy Project. They mean well and know that laughter is good for our health.
