New York-based comedian Rory Scovel is a hoot. In his act, he presents a plethora of absurdity that can be found in everyday life situations. You may have seen his stand-up on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and Comedy Central's Live at Gotham, but in case you haven't, take my word for it: He'll make you laugh. See for yourself when he performs at Wok Bar in Charlotte. Comedians Steve Forrest (He's local and we know he's funny, too.) and Scott Moran open. $5-$10. 7 p.m. Wok Bar, 127 N. Tryon St. 704-887-9720. www.wokbarnc.com/charlotte_comedy.html.
