On this week’s Smile Politely Radio, Justin Tuttle of C-U Comedy swings through the studio to chat up recent happenings and upcoming funny times right here in town. We make him reminisce on how C-U Comedy got started, why it got started, and how it’s helping foster the always-growing stand-up scene in Chambana. Plus, we delve into some details about the regular comedy events in town, including open mic nights at Clark Bar and the weekly stand-up showcase at Memphis on Main. Tuttle also offers some details about what it’s like to perform in nearby towns versus right here in Champaign-Urbana, and how the lack of a dedicated comedy club in our twin cities can be both a good and bad thing.
Smile Politely Radio airs each Friday evening at 5:30 on WEFT 90.1 FM in Champaign, and is available as a podcast the following week.
