Day three of the 2016 Cape Fear Comedy Festival saw the storms that have plagued us all week begin to subside. Comics had nearly entirely indoctrinated one another into their new comedy families. I continued to see photos of amazing grilled food prepared by Courtney Fearrington at the Jengo’s compound. Calls began coming in early afternoon about the shows for the evening.
The evening kicked off with Mary Mack at Dead Crow Comedy Room. The show was great and the crowd was nearly at capacity. City Stage kicked off minutes later with a stand-up showcase, followed by Dusty Slay’s Album recording. We can’t say enough good things about City Stage as a venue. Above and beyond that, Louis Bishop stepped up and did a hell of a job recording Dusty’s show. Also, the dudes from Fake Brothers and Nick from City Stage Co. went above and beyond to help us with our shows there.
The Bombers Bevarge Company showcase was packed. Comics were killing it each time I walked in the room.
The night concluded with a loud, drunken audience being put in a comedy headlock by the comics who closed out the late show at Reel Cafe. All in all, one amazing evening.
TONIGHT IS THE FINAL NIGHT!
