Wham City to hold monthly comedy nights

Coming off a successful East Coast comedy tour, Wham City will begin holding monthly comedy nights this month.

Ben O'Brien, who booked the tour, says the monthly event will be different in that it will consist only of stand-up.

The tour was a hybrid of stand-up, video, absurdist theater and dance.

It featured O'Brien, Ed Schrader, Alan Resnick, Robby Rackleff, April Camlin, Pete O'Connell, Mason Ross, Adam Endres, Connor Kizer, Dina Kelberman, as well as Dan Deacon. 

The first comedy night will feature Resnick, as well as some new players - A Funny Clown, Erin Gleeson, Frank Martone, Kevin Sherry, Keith Lea, and Showbiz!

O'Brien and Mason Ross will host. It's scheduled for January 18 at the Zodiac. Tickets are $5 at the door.

The next show, scheduled for February 22, features only female comics. Amy Harmon, Anna Fitzgerald, Cricket Arrison, Ellie Beziat, Liz Donadio, Lola Pierson, and Caroline Marcantoni, who choreographed the tour's dancing finale, will perform. 

O'Brien said in the future the show might include some of the other elements found in the tour.
