Another edition of Comedy On Us! Vol. 24 and this week we find ourselves in the midst of Comedy shows, Contests, Symposiums and even a festival audition show. Lots of announcements and interactive events for Comedy fans and performers alike. There is a new venue opened up to comedy showcases in RI, a recent club closing and possible move and some stage time opportunities for newer comics and even a new segment to invoke comedy gold from guests. All in a week's work for the Corner. See you tonight!

Urine for a treat. This could count for both off and on air hi-jinks Last week during the segment "These Things Write Themselves," Andy Lester told the story of the lady in the airport. He had managed to snap a picture to go along with his blog. We couldn't show you that picture through the radio airwaves but we do have an edited version of the photo here to the right and you can read Andy's blog, Nice Shot Karma with that link. Enjoy! Its a doozy.
Catch A Rising Star, Lincoln closes its doors. On the Air we had Frank O'Donnell fill us in on where the club is going and how to find them. I took what I knew previously and put it HERE in Catch A Rising Star Updates last week.

New Segment: What Should I like? As a comedian people are always shocked when I have the "Unpopular opinion." For example, I don't really care for SNL, there I said it. And yes, I LOVE SKETCH so naturally "they" assume I would love it. Also as a "Man" I tend to be unconventional. So I combined these ideas into a new segment where I find out what society at large says I should be doing and liking and seeing if I do or like it. We will also feature other comics and guests weighing in as well.
MARCH 22nd is the Open Mics, Open Minds Comedy Symposium at URI an all Day Event featuring workshops from guys like Yours Truly and even Mya Kaplan and culminating in a live comedy Show with Patton Oswalt! Check out the event info on our EVENT PAGE HERE, and register today!
