Bare Your Funny Onstage

Achieving standup stardom ain't easy. It takes a lot of courage (sometimes of the liquid variety) to put yourself out there. People like Aziz Ansari and Jeff Dunham spent years working the standup arena before finding fame. Even Dane Cook had to put in the time before he could fake-bang Jessica Alba in movies. Luckily, there are venues willing to give newcomers and local talent the spotlight to shine. Or bomb horribly. Whichever. The Fort Lauderdale Comedy Club is hosting an ongoing Open Mic Night every Thursday until late December. Located at 840 E. Oakland Park Blvd., Ste. 106, in Oakland Park, the funny goes from 8 to 10 p.m. with free admission. Sign-ups start at 7:50 p.m., and drink specials are available. Call 954-530-2069, or visit
Thursdays, 8-10 p.m. Starts: Oct. 11. Continues through Oct. 3, 2012
