Stand-up comedy is still a viable entertainment option in the Beaufort area thanks

to the efforts of AMVETS Post 70 in Port Royal, South Carolina. Due to the efforts of AMVETS members, AMVETS bar Manager Tammy Tully, and local stand-up comedian and TCL Psychology Instructor Tom Mullins, quality stand-up comedy is available on a quarterly basis.  The next show is scheduled for Wednesday, June 18 at 7:00 PM.
     Headlining the show will be Kerry White and featuring will be Rob Anderson.  This will be the 11th show at the location and crowd reaction has been outstanding.  Mullins, a Beaufort resident and 10 year veteran of stand-up comedy, emcees the shows and books two other comedians, a feature, and a headliner for each show.  Mullins says, “I have worked the stand-up circuit for a number of years.  One of my students at TCL approached me with the idea of doing a show at the AMVETS post.  I only book established stand-up comedians and the shows have been great. The comedians who perform here are the same ones you would see in Jacksonville, Charlotte, Atlanta, or other major venues. The fact that we do a Wednesday night show allows us to get them in the middle of the week, usually traveling between shows.” 
    The show starts at 7:00 PM and is over by 9:00-9:15, “so it’s not a late night, for those that have to work the next day,” Mullins continues.
    The comedy shows are open to the public (you do not have to be an AMVETS member to attend) and the price is $15.00 per person.  The AMVETS also does burger night on Wednesday so come early and get a burger and sides before the show.  The show is “R” rated, you must be 18 or older to attend. 
    “It’s not an offensive show”, says Mullins, “but there may be some profanity, so we try to limit the audience to adults. This is our 11th show and we haven’t had a bad one yet.  Please come out and try us, I’ll bet you won’t be disappointed.”
