“The local comedy scene has exploded in the past few years,” says Greg Hardin of the Funny Business Entertainment Agency. He lists established open mic shows at The Odditorium (Tuesdays), The Southern Kitchen and Bar’s Dirty South Lounge (Wednesdays plus extra monthly dates) and Pulp (Thursdays). “A lot of people can’t make it out on weeknights,” he says, “so we put together a lineup of 10 of the best local comics and put them in a professional show at The Millroom.” The parade of Asheville humorists — including Petey Smith-McDowell, Tom Peters, Minori Hinds, Cody Hughes, Jason Webb, Grayson Morris, Tom Scheve, Cary Goff, Gabe Rosenberg, Macon Clark and host Chase McNeill — takes place Saturday, Jan. 9, at 8 p.m. $10/$12. avl.mx/23i.
