Presented as part of Charleston Pride, this evening of comedy features five hilarous comics and and an equally lol-worthy host. Head to the Music Hall for headliner Ky Krebs, and stay for additional performers including Charleston darling Shawna Jarrett as well as Julie Osborne, Ava Smartt, and Shaine Laine. Funny woman Jenn Snyder hosts the evening. Krebs, an Austin, Tex.-based stand-up comedian, uses both his queer perspective and sharp wit to delve into an absurd reality (sounds fun to us). He’s the cohost of one of Austin’s most popular podcasts, Extra Salty, and he recently recorded a special, “Oops, All Gay Jokes.” Dallas’ Theater Jones, a performing arts publication, describes Krebs as a “Birbiglia-esque storyteller and a masterful one.” Jarrett is the head comic on the Charleston Comedy Bus and host of The Get Up! comedy night (you can also find her performing all over town on any given night). She covers all the good material like growing up in Florida, businesses housed in former Pizza Huts (more than you’d think), and seeing her cousin on COPS. Atlanta’s Osborne once used her wit to deal with prsion inmates when she worked as a corrections officer; Smartt is a native Texan and trans woman who uses her small town charm to make audiences feel comfortable — even when the lines are blurred; and Laine is an up-and-coming Charlotte comedian who talks about his transition with equal amounts of love and satire. Host Snyder packs a lot of funny at 5’2.” Just trust us, you’ll love her.
