LOL: Comedy in the Q.C.



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.


Charlie Murphy isn't completely in his brother Eddie's shadow - in fact, he's wallowed his way to fame with his True Hollywood Stories sketches on Chappelle's Show. His reflections as a hot-headed security guard, mad reactor and party-goer for actor/comedian and younger bro Eddie Murphy have seriously made an impression - what kind of impression, well, we'll leave that up to you to decide. But his past exaggerated adventures with Prince and Rick James are pretty funny. For a glimpse at his latest material, check him out when he stops in at The Comedy Zone Charlotte. $20-$25. May 24, 8 p.m.; May 25, 8 p.m. and 10:15 p.m.; May 26, 7 p.m. and 9:30 p.m.; May 27, 7 p.m. The Comedy Zone Charlotte at N.C. Music Factory, 900 N.C. Music Factory Blvd., Suite B3. 980-321-4702.

The Omegas of Charlotte's Coming to the Stage comedy show is set to feature headliner Spike Davis with Kenny Mack. $15-$20. May 25, 9 p.m. Omegas of Charlotte, 3301 Statesville Ave., Charlotte. 704-957-5707.

Local improve troupe, Charlotte Comedy Theater doesn't ignore its audience, but rather uses them to their own advantage. Off-stage participation is a must in this R-rated performance. $10. May 26, 8 p.m. Wet Willies, 900 Seaboard St., Charlotte. 704-716-5650.
