We are big Stand-Up comedy fans and support live comedy. It's just not the same on TV. It's fun to watch at home on the couch, but nothing beats the experience of seeing it live. You do not know who will pop into the club, or what will happen. See all the styles of great comedy at www.profusiontalent.com/comedians.html
