Hey, comedy nerds! There are shows every night in Atlanta but I’m gonna highlight a few that I think will be well worth your time. Y’all, ready?
Prayer Requests at Red Light Cafe – Thurs., 5/3

Ladie’s Night at Village Theatre – Thurs., 5/3
The late-night sketch/stand-up hybrid showcase has been passed on to a new set of hosts. Chris Nikitas and Amber North take hold of the reigns and bringing the same crop of excellent video sketches and stand-up from the Atlanta film and comedy scenes. More info.
Urban Tree Comedy at Urban Tree Cidery – Fri., 5/4
Take a break from the same old hoppy AF breweries and head over to Atlanta’s only cidery. The great Damon Sumner headlines this month’s showcase that regular sells out so I highly advice getting yo tix in advance. More info.
Of course, there’s plenty of other shows going on. Find more at atlantacomedy.tumblr.com.
