Funny Business


Mike “The Comedy Professor” Veneman headlines tonight’s Cleveland Comedy Festival Preview Showcase, a foretaste of the city’s inaugural yuckfest, which debuts in October. Fellow funnymen Chris Hegedus, Dave Arena, and Ryan Dalton also perform tonight. The four-day fest will include comedy showcases, contests, and workshops. Organizer Joe Hannum is even trying to lure Cleveland-born comics like Arsenio Hall and Carol Kane back to town to talk about their big breaks on the ha-ha circuit.
Mon., March 12, 8 p.m.
