Re: “Best Local Comedian that Nashville Stole From Us

I do have a question Elizabeth. Do you ever watch any other comedians in the Low Country or just the one's downtown? Roland Jay Moore, Sean Jones, Dave Evans and myself started doing comedy (and we all live here BTW) here over 20 years ago. We all have performed here locally, everywhere from Mt. P., James Island, Downtown, Summerville, Goose Creek, West Ashley, North Charleston as well as all over The USA ( I performed for the troops in Japan last June) Jay is Princess Cruise Lines top comic, Sean has been seen in movies & TV, Dave not only performs but has had one of the biggest comedy competitions (Put your money where your mouth is) this area has ever seen. He had comics come from Fla., NC, Mrytle Beach, Ga. I just did a show at Ms. Rose's in November and they had to turn people away, I've got it on video!! I'm sorry, I don't want to sound bitter and I like Dusty, he has been a middle act for me several times (that means he opened up the show and I followed him) and I've judged several competitions he's been in and won, I voted for him. I just think it's lazy to just put his name out there again when guys such as the folks I mentioned have been making people laugh in the area for years get overlooked just because they're not in the right clique. I'll talk about this on my radio show and in my WEB series that shows what life is like being a road comic called "BTS On the Road" (24 episodes so far, shooting 25 later this month). How about we show support for ALL the great comedians in our area and not just the peninsula crowd or maybe they should distribute the City Paper only in the downtown area where they should be limited to getting they're sponsors from? As for me, I don't care, I live local, but I'm worldwide.

Re: “How humble Summerville became a Mecca of punk, metal, and hardcore in the early '00s

'All Books' was an absolute mind-blower, I couldn't believe the owners let it happen. I caught the very tail end of it, but the little dose I got opened up so much. Many friendships came from it and a most important moment hanging out with Andrew Barranca in the parking lot after a 'Puke Attack' performance and talking about making a film together.

Thanks to all involved!

Re: “Best Place to Buy a Boat

Buying a boat can be one of the best things ever. I remember going out on trips to lakes in Utah and Idaho with my friend's family. It would be so much fun to be able to do that on my own. If I lived near the ocean it would make even more sense to buy something like this.

Not sure who T. Rav is, but it is really easy to renounce your U.S. Citizenship. For example, check out this book: http://glr.com/80ae

Re: “Best Collection of Lion Art

The collection of lion pictures is because the restaurant opened in 1972 as the Hungry Lion Restaurant, owned by Paul Kemerle and Jack Sewell. Paul sold his interest to Jack in 1992 and Jack renamed it but kept the pictures and theme.

Re: “Best Fishing Charter

As first time visitors to South Carolina, we had experience with fresh water fishing, but none with inshore fishing, so we were looking forward to our charter with Captain Jamie. Unfortunately, our excitement was short lived. Our “lovely” afternoon started with Captain Jamie being 15 minutes late to meet us at the dock, and digressed from there. He spent the majority of our 4 hour tour making and receiving personal phone calls, he was surly, and short tempered, and he had the audacity to yell, yes literally yell, at us when he thought we were scaring his fish away. He equated our photo taking to Japanese tourists, which as tourists from out of state, it seemed only natural for us to take pictures of what we were seeing and doing. To make matters worse, he got our boat anchor hooked to another 2 boats, and as he tried to speed off to get our anchor unhooked, he nearly sunk the other 2 boats; and gosh, those other tourists and their guides looked mighty happy with Captain Jamie over that. The charter was awful, and when we finally got around to fishing and catching fish, no one wanted to participate after 3 hours of verbal abuse and disrespect. We were his customers and he treated us terribly. Captain Jamie not only lacks ‘Southern Charm,’ but basic respect, and he should stick to fishing my himself in tournaments where he doesn’t have to inflict his poor behavior on tourists who are willing to pay for a happy experience on the South Carolina coast.
