Like stand-up comedy?

A new local production team is hoping to stimulate Asheville's comedy scene by bringing nationwide acts to town on a regular basis, starting with what they figure is Asheville's first-ever show of nationally touring comedians, "Three Comedians Crash the Wortham."

who: Melanie Maloy, Tim Northern and Scott Oseychik with appearances by Asheville's Tom Chalmers and Charlotte-based stand-up comedian Joe Zimmerman
where: Diana Wortham Theatre
when: Friday, March 7. 7 p.m. and 9:30 p.m
Tickets are $24.

Yesterday's Mountain X article on the show is here.

Producers Greg and Rowan are looking for volunteers to usher both shows ( 7 p.m. and 9:30 p.m.) in return for free tickets. You might also possibly get a free beer or two. Send email to laughyourashevilleoff (at) gmail (dot) you-know-what.

I've ushered their two previous comedy shows, and here's a tip from me: Comedians are funnier at the later shows. It just seems to be the nature of the comedic beast.
