Dan Weeks has been a staple of Atlanta's local comedy scene since 2006, soaking up stage time at any venue available. His comedy is a transcendental trip through Happyland, making it hard not to laugh at everything he says because he's amiable even in angst. With material that playfully covers everything from karate dojos in Alpharetta to the brilliance of Animal Planet's "Shark Week," his hard-to-take-seriously persona makes even his blue material endearing. By the end of his set you will hurt from laughing with and/or at one of the silliest citizens of the ATL.
ATLien since: 2002
Years of stand-up experence: 4
A lil' Joke: "I was at the store today and bought a package of 30 condoms, and when I brought them to the counter, the lady at the counter scoffed at me. I don't know if it's because I was buying 30 condoms or because i tried to give her a high-five. I guess that's not a good time to give a high five... another time it's not cool to give a high-five is to a cop after you've just blown under a .08. Like, '.079 bitches! I'll take those keys playa'.

Upcoming performances: Wednesday, July 14 @ Punchline Thursday, July 15 @ Relapse Theater

Adam Carolla has made quite a career for himself in stand-up, radio, and television, as the comedic voice of the working man. This Friday he will be bringing his intelligent, unfiltered mix of observations, rants and story-telling to the Tabernacle.

Kyle Kinane is an unmotivated, self-aware misanthrope. He's also one of the best comedians on the planet. CL recently spoke with Kinane, who will be headlining Comedy Gold at the Buckhead Theatre on Saturday, May 7, about his start in comedy, his career trajectory, and why he should be nicer to audiences.
