Starting next month, The Famous International Variety Show, formerly at the Copabanana on 40th Street, returns to Sunday nights at Connie’s Ric Rac. This would mark another addition to the ever-expanding comedy line-up at the Ric Rac. Hosted by Darryl Charles, James Hesky, and Mykal Carter Jackson, the mic starts back up on February 13th at 7PM, 1132 S. 9th St.
Also, rumor has it that a new Monday open mic will come to the Fairmount area starting in March. This would be on top of the existing Monday open mic, Comedy on the Grille. More on that when the details come.
