Although Joe Zimmerman relocated to New York City to pursue a career in comedy, the former Ashevillean still comes back to visit — at least during his extensive, national comedy tours. Zimmerman, who calls himself an “ambassador of joy,” was recently featured on Comedy Central’s “The Half Hour,” “The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson,” John Oliver’s “Stand-up Show” and NBC’s “Last Comic Standing” in addition to receiving accolades at several comedy festivals for his “accessible absurdisms.” Atlanta-based comedian Rob Haze, known for his clever wordplay and pop culture references, will open Zimmerman’s homecoming show at The Millroom on Wednesday, Dec. 3, at 7 p.m. $10 advance/$12 day of show. ashevillemillroom.com.
