After four consecutive years of sold out shows at the Charleston Comedy Festival, North America’s most defining, multicultural stand-up comedy showcase is set to launch “MRSOE! Presents...” A monthly comedy series that will feature nationally touring comedians at venues in and around the Charleston area.
On Thursday, April 28, 2016, MRSOE! Presents...”Stand-Up @ The Sparrow”. The Sparrow (1078 E Montague Ave) a traditional music venue located in the popular Park Circle neighbourhood will convert to a comedy club every last Thursday of the month and will feature a rotating Food Truck, plus live music and drink specials.
On Sunday, May 1, 2016, MRSOE! Presents...”Haa! Haa! Black Sheep” at the Black Sheep Bar & Grill (713 Coleman Blvd.) in Mt. Pleasant. Every first Sunday of the month, comedy will be performed in their dedicated event space and the venue will feature drink and food specials.
Both shows will be headlined by Rob HaZe (As seen on Comedy Central and NBC’s Last Comic Standing).
Rob Haze is a comedian originally from Atlanta, Georgia, but now residing in New York City. In a short time, Rob has amassed quite a few credits, including a recent appearance on "Adam Devine's House Party on Comedy Central" as well as a prestigious spot on the New Faces showcase at the 2015 Just For Laughs Comedy Festival. You may have seen him on NBC's 9th season of Last Comic Standing or his many appearances on HLN News Now. Rob is the 2015 winner of The Laughing Skull Comedy Festival, which is regarded as one of the top Stand-Up Comedy Competitions in North America. Rob shares his gift of comedy at clubs, colleges, and corporations all over the country priding himself on bringing people together rather than tearing them apart.
MRSOE! Presents... was created as the answer to Charleston’s lack of a professional comedy club. Charleston based, Filipino-Canadian comedian Neil Bansil felt the best way to establish a professional comedy scene in Charleston was to create one himself and pave the way for touring comedians to visit the city and perform.
In addition to monthly shows in and around Charleston, MRSOE! Presents... is also in the process of creating a bi-monthly show at the 225 seat Woolfe Street Playhouse (34 Woolfe St.), with the first show set for Saturday, July 23, 2016 with a comedian that will be announced at a later date.
MRSOE! Presents...is a subsidiary of the larger MRSOE! (The Most RACES Show on Earth!) Show that is held yearly at the 936 seat Charleston Music Hall (37 John St.). This years MRSOE! show is set for Thursday, September 8, 2016 and will continue with its theme of promoting diversity by showcasing comedians of different ethnicities and cultures.
These two nights of entertainment will be hosted by Neil Bansil (Creator and Producer of MRSOE!) and will also feature opening performances from local Charleston comedians.
