Locally produced open mic Slice of Life Comedy readies itself for its first birthday with (what else?) a full night of laughs. Usually Slice of Life is held at Pulp, the Orange Peel's private downstairs club. On Thursday, Oct. 18, however, the show moves upstairs. The Beards of Comedy (straight from their 2011 album Cardio Mix, released on Comedy Central Records) headline the Orange Peel stage. The fabulous Kelly Row hosts, local Pulp comic favorites Cody Hughes and Petey Smith McDowell will perform and the acrobat/musicians Sugarfoot Seranaders will amaze and astound. Plus, food and drink specials. 9 p.m., $10 in advance or $12 at the door. http://theorangepeel.net.
