Christmas is just around the corner, and most of us, could use a laugh. This is the time of year to be joyous, yet the stress of engaging in gift buying and awaiting the arrival of certain relatives can be overwhelming beyond belief. Good thing, comedian Ken Evans is in town tonight. Skedaddle over to Lake Norman Comedy Zone for an escape from holiday madness, and a show that will most likely have you laughing in no time. Lake Norman Comedy Zone in Galway Hooker Irish Pub, 17044 Kenton Dr., Cornelius. 704-895-1782. www.lkncomedyzone.com.
