The comedy component of NXNE has become as exciting as the music lineup, with top acts performing throughout the week at venues across the city, from Comedy Bar and Vapor Central to Wrongbar and Yuk Yuk's from Tuesday to Sunday (June 17-22). Headliners to catch include alt icon Reggie Watts, two bright comics from the UK, the cerebral Simon Amstell and the adorable Luisa Omielan (bringing her much-buzzed-about show What Would Beyoncé Do?), Andy Milonakis, all grown up from his groundbreaking MTV sketch show, archetypal guy's guy Robert Kelly, and our own fabulous queer comics Scott Thompson and DeAnne Smith. Pretty much every worthy local comic is performing, and unlike some other comedy festivals, sketch isn't being ignored. Plus, you'll definitely get the last laugh, with some shows happening as late as 3:10 am. See details at nxne.com/comedy.
