Comedian Mike Cody is widely known in the local comedy scene as the man behind the Underbelly comedy show at the Southgate House. He also does stand-up throughout the Midwest, but concurrently continues to be a comedy impresario of sorts. His latest effort is a stand-up comedy show to be held at Arcade Legacy in the Tri-County area. The facility features classic arcade games in a 4,000 square foot space. So why a comedy show in an arcade?
“About two months ago, I set up a get-together for several of my comedian friends at Arcade Legacy,” Cody explains..
“As it turns out, (comedian) Geoff Tate is old friends with the owner, Jesse, who was really big on the idea of doing a show at there. He’s had a few Punk Rock shows there in the past. Geoff hates running shows so he asked his occasionally-too-nice friend, me, to put it together.”
In addition to Cody and Tate, several other top comics from Southwest Ohio will be there including Mike "Meat" Cronin, a finalist in this year's Funniest Person in Cincinnati competition, Butch Wesley, a comedian/computer programmer and video game addict, and Vincent Holiday from Dayton. Arcade Legacy (322 W. Crescentville Road) is open 6 p.m.-midnight Tuesday. The comedy show will start exactly at 8 p.m. Admission for both the comedy show and non-stop gaming is $10.
