SAK Comedy Lab
Around since 1991, the SAK Comedy Lab improve venue has been the launching pad for several nationally known stars, including The Price Is Right host Wayne Brady. On the stoic front facade of the gray CityArts Factory building hangs a larger-than-life version of Mona Lisa, her cryptic smile anticipating the tomfoolery that typically goes on within these walls. Upstairs, in the Eola Capital Loft, 200 seats are arranged stadium-style before a circular stage that features only stools and a screen. Regular shows include "Duel of Fools" and "Gorilla Theatre," and the twice-weekly "Slice of Life" bits take humorous slants on a special audience member audience, usually somebody who is celebrating a birthday or other milestone—not quite roasts, but darn close!
