Not just any funny guy or gal can perform at the Charleston Comedy Festival. It takes talent, and the ability to stand in front of a crowd of people laughing at you. The first preliminary round for the Comedy Festival’s Stand-up Competition took place at Theatre 99 back in November, when Clint Nohr took home first place after sharing his dreams of opening a club called Fruits and Vegetables and boldly cracking on bikers’ chicks and their “pulled pork titties.” Jason Groce, a self-proclaimed mix of “Wolverine, John Goodman, and Kelsey Grammar,” won second place. Even more stand-up comics — 15 of them, in fact — will bring the funny at Saturday night’s gig, the second of four rounds leading up to the Stand-up Competition on Jan. 20 at the Music Farm. From Theatre 99 regulars to out-of-towners, the competitors will each have five minutes to convince you, the audience, that they’re the funniest. Want some hint of what you’re in for? Check out this video from the first round. —Erica Jackson
