2015 Charleston Comedy Festival

 Charleston's little ol' comedy festival keeps getting bigger and better, and this year is no exception — in fact, if we're going by headliners, this year's fest has grown three full sizes. Instead of a single big name, 2015's lineup includes the triple-threat of Hannibal Buress, Doug Benson, and John Mulaney. And though as of press time, Buress and Mulaney were both sold out, there are plenty of other shows that'll leave you crying with laughter, from the Underwear Comedy Party, where stand ups perform in nothing but their undies, to the musical comedy masters North Coast and Pop Roulette. Take a look in these pages to find the perfect performance to tickle your funny bone.

Stand-Up Competition Winners strut their stuff

After scoring first place in last year's Charleston Comedy Festival Stand-Up Competition, Mike Brocki is back to dole out more jokes. Originally from Chicago, Brocki has become a key player in the local comedy scene. He began writing jokes as early as age 14 and occasionally performed at open mic nights, but never seriously pursued comedy until moving to Charleston. Before relocating, Brocki was in the Air Force stationed in Dover, DE — a place that, according to him, lacked a real comedy scene — so he continued to write jokes in his spare time. — Connelly Hardaway

Greg Tavares and Lee Lewis make up Moral Fixation, a comedy duo that's been going strong for 11 years now. Needless to say spending that much time together has taught the guys the ins and outs of performing side by side. — Connelly Hardaway

One part stand-up, one part improv — the Ruckus Room Stand-Up Show is an outrageous time for both the audience and the performers.
