Coach House to Stage Weekly Comedy Shows

The Coach House, the county’s premiere pop-music venue, will launch a monthlong series of Wednesday night comedy shows next week.

Coach House publicist Nikki Sweet said the decision to branch out sprung from a decline in the availability of bands in recent months, coupled with the success of the occasional comedy nights that the club has been offering since fall.

Appearing Wednesday are Carmen Circillo, Robert Jenkins, Steve Marmell and Dan Reddington. Show time is 8 p.m., and tickets are $10. Mark Wilmore, Bob Worley, Peter Gaulkeand Doug Starks perform April 10; Chris Hendrix, Carl Wolfson, June Boykin and Harris Peet on April 17; and Tom Shiekman and Kary Odis on April 24 along with two comedians to be announced.
