Stand-up comedy, coming up Sunday


So you know that recurring dream, the oneĀ  in which you arrive at a pizza place to do stand-up comedy but there's no one there, so you end up attempting to amuse three guys who are obsessing on pepperoni and one who's worried about wi-fi and ....

OK, maybe that is a bit specific, but it's my current concern. Long ago, I agreed to be in a stand-up comedy contest, because ... well, it was way in the future (April 22) and nothing to worry about. Now the future is almost here and I worry about whether anyone will be there.

Comedy on Sunday: Some details


For people in the Lansing, Mich., area, I have a few more details about Sunday's comedy show. It starts earlier than I thought ... which shows roughly how much I know about it, even though I'm in it.

Anyway, here are the basics:

-- When: 6-9 p.m. Sunday (April 22). Strange Bedfellow hosts; at 6:30 p.m., there will be a drawing to see what order the four stand-ups will perform in.

-- Where: Grand Cafe/Sir Pizza, 201 E. Grand River Ave. in Old Town.
