This Week at Cap City Comedy Club
There are a whole bunch of reasons we’re huge Jackie Kashian fans, not least that she’s such a good comic that she’s starred in her own half-hour special for Comedy Central, among other impressive achievements and accolades and she’s been in the comedy racket long enough to boast an acting credit on "Murphy Brown."
Tim Allen, Ellen DeGeneres, Jim Carey all had to start somewhere, didn't they? An open mic to a comic is like beginning your freshman year on a 10 year PHD program, and few receive their PHDs. You go up cold and usually unfunny, and relish any sound that might be a snicker or a laugh. But that's usually all it takes and you're hooked on the late nights and working hard to get more laughs.
PUNCH! is your go-to for consistent, high-caliber comedy. Unlike open-mics or haphazardly assembled showcases, PUNCH! is a carefully curated show with an eye on professionalism, cutting edge content, and audience enjoyment. A joint production between Matt Bearden and Capitol City Comedy Club, PUNCH! maintains a focus on stand-up, but also makes nods toward reliable improv, sketch and variety acts.
