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.
