Local comedians will cast out their best shtick during grand opening shows Sept. 9 to 11 at the Flappers Comedy Club.
The grand opening evening shows will be emceed by Samuel J. Comroe.
Comroe plays up his Tourette's syndrome that, he said, inspires lots of laughs from the audience.
"In the beginning, I didn't do too much on Tourette's syndrome, but I was told by Barbara [Holliday, the club's owner] and other comedians to take advantage of it," he said. "It separated me from others and provided me uphill success from there. I really embraced it."
One bit he does at the opening of his segment usually always gets a laugh.
"I have Tourette's," he tells the audience. "You don't know what it's like when a haircut becomes a life or death situation. I don't want Super Cuts to be the last thing I see."
Comroe will also be hosting and producing the Flappers University College Nights at 10 p.m. on Wednesdays. To help draw a younger crowd, college students get in for half price when they show their student ID.
