Want to win a pair of tickets? Look for this post on the Xpress Facebook page.

New York-based comedian Mike Lawrence kicks off a new comedy series, Funny Business at The Mill Room. Lawrence has appeared on Conan, Maron's WTF, Paul Provenza's Setlist and John Oliver's New York Stand Up Show. He's know for his pop-culture savvy and his "dark and nerdy sensibilities." On his Modern Comedian video, Lawrence (wearing a Curb Your Enthusiasm T-shirt, so you know what you're dealing with), says, "I feel like I'm getting older, to the point where Fleetwood Mac's 'Landslide' is speaking to me personally. That's the 'Don't Stop Believing' for people who have clearly stopped believing." His Asheville show is Friday, Nov. 1, with Tanner Inman. 7 and 9:30 p.m. $15/$17. ashevillemillroom.com.
