Listed below is a roundup of CL’s top picks for comedy shows in Charlotte this week. Hopefully, they keep you entertained and, more importantly, laughing out loud.
• Don't get comedian Natasha Legerro started on the women’s movement. She’s pissed about having to work, while her female predecessors got a free pass. And forget having babies. “Having a baby is like a D.U.I. from the universe,” she says. Legerro, who has been a regular on Chelsea Lately, Reno 911! and Comedy Central, is also music critic. Not really, but she’ll give her two cents on the absurdity of hip-hop, country and whatever else she hears on the radio. $15-$20. Feb. 2, 8 p.m.; Feb. 3-4, 8 and 10:15 p.m. The Comedy Zone at NC Music Factory, 900 Seaboard St., Suite B3. 980-321-4702. www.cltcomedyzone.com.
• Murder Mystery Company's Death at the Doo-Wop is an interactive show set around a 1950s-style prom. Is the true killer wearing a poodle skirt? You decide who-dun-it over a three-course dinner. $60 (includes the performance and the meal). Feb., 3, 7 p.m. Beauregard's, 3030 Freedom Drive. For reservations, call 888-643-2583 or visit www.themurdermysteryco.com.
• Local comedy troupe Robot Johnson delivers sketches that are funny with or without one of the bar's specialty drinks — created and named after Robot Johnson characters. $10. Feb. 4, 9 p.m. Roux, 3306 N. Davidson St., Suite A.
