About this Episode

Remember when pretty much the only place to see stand-up comedy in the Valley was the Improv in Tempe? Well, now you can see it every night of the week at dozens of venues throughout this sprawling land. The stand-up comedy scene has taken off in the last decade, from wannabe comics coming out of the woodwork at open mics to national names commonplace on local marquees. And now we have Bird City Comedy Festival, April 6-9, in its second year featuring more than 100 funny performers from around the country. You'll see stand-up, improv, sketch, storytelling and more. Founder Genevieve Rice sits down with us to discuss comedy and its place in the Valley. LOL!
