Laugh for a Lincoln 

When: Wednesdays, 8 p.m.
Phone: (843) 853-6687
Price: $5
Since Christmas Eve falls on a Wednesday this year, we thought our cheap night of comedy was ruined. But the Christmas elves over at Theatre 99 have saved the day and moved Laugh for a Lincoln to Saturday instead. And let’s be honest, we’re going to need some cheer after all that family time. Taking the stage after a round of Improv Riot — which starts at 8 p.m., costs $12, and features five or six Theatre 99 comedians — this go-round of the $5 funny night will feature improv group Little Miss Co-Dependent, starring Theatre 99 co-founder Brandy Sullivan and Jessica Mickey. Joining the ladies on stage will be another one or two still-to-be-determined acts. “The times always have an effect on the show, whether it’s Easter or Election Day — because it’s in the moment,” Sullivan says. “I have no idea what’s going to happen, but I bet there’ll be Christmas, Hanukkah, or New Year’s jokes.

    Tavares can't decide if it's a revolution or a tipping point, but he says there's an explosion of improv across the nation. "In the past 10 years, I've seen about 20 different improv festivals begin in places like New Orleans, St. Louis, Atlanta, and, of course, Charleston." Ironically, Sullivan says that participants in these events rarely walk away with more than a little exposure and a round of applause, but at the Charleston Comedy Festival, acts always make some cash. "Whatever they sell in tickets they keep. That never happens at other festivals!" she adds.
