Hell's Kitchen

One common format for comedy shows is the comic trifecta: the host, the feature, and the headliner. Stand-up comics can be solitary creatures; even within the trifecta, they may not speak to each other or even make eye contact. Two Wilmington-based comedians joined me in the studio...I tried to unravel the inner workings of the comedian species-without much success-but with some interesting insights gleaned. What kind of comedians are there? And what is the comedian habitat? Listen to Jamey Stone and Timmy Sherrill give us a peek above. These comedians can be caught in the wild (i.e., onstage), along with Drew Harrison, performing Comedy in Hell at Hell's Kitchen on Wednesday night.

Stand-up comedian Jamey Stone is from Wilmington, but you may not have seen his act before. He mainly performs theatre here at home and takes his comedy on the road. But Wednesday night, Jamey Stone is headlining a comedy night at Hell's Kitchen in downtown Wilmington. Port City Top Comic Drew Harrison is the emcee, with John Felts as the featured performer. Listen above to Jamey talking about comedy-and why political comedy doesn't work so well these days.
