The Charleston Music Hall is thrilled to present the final installment of the Spring Stand Up Series with Metronome Charleston. Just as in a boxing match, the final round is the most intense and the most interesting. Resident funny man Dusty Slay has hand-picked a plethora of joke tellers that promise to keep the spleens splitting and the tears flowing.
To add to the initial excitement, this marks Dusty Slay's return to the Charleston comedy scene since his departure from the land of palmetto trees to Nashville, Tennessee last month. Slay has chosen to share the homecoming party with local comics Lauren Hope Krass, Vince Fabra and Michael Brocki.
Each of these comics have been selected for their different abilities and styles. Lauren Hope Krass uses a personal brand of charming and self-deprecating humor to win over crowds such as the Charleston Comedy Festival in which she was awarded third place. Vince Fabra, or “the greatest comedian of all time” if you ask his mother, is a native of New Orleans and brings a relatable perspective and sense of humor that connects with all types of audiences he meets. Fabra co-wrote the acclaimed sketch show “The Importance of Being Awkward” and in all honesty, just wants to be your friend. Michael Brocki is a newcomer to the Charleston comedy family but has made an impressive impact in a short amount of time. Brocki's comedy is described as “hauntingly beautiful” and “souful,” – well, maybe that is a lot – let's just say he is really funny. Come enjoy all of these comedians and buddy up with Dusty Slay at the final installment of the Spring Stand Up Series with the Charleston Music Hall and Metronome Charleston on May 25.
Doors open at 7 p.m. and the show starts at 8 p.m. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased online at www.charlestonmusichall.com or at the box office at 37 John St., Charleston, South Carolina.
