The Queen City has certainly had its share of comic relief lately. What with this whole light rail debacle and a whole laundry list of other issues. However, one thing we are good at is laughing at ourselves. LOL. But, seriously, it does help when there's a comedian onstage to help you through the process. The Comedy Zone and the Blumenthal Perfoming Arts Center have teamed up to sponsor a comedy series. Next up, is NBC's Last Comic Standing Tour. The search for the globe's funniest men and women takes a closer approach. See your favorites from this past season. 8 p.m. $10-$44. Belk Theater, Blumenthal Performing Arts Center, 130 N. Tryon St. www.blumenthalcenter.org.
