It’s the end of an era indeed. Underbelly, the comedy show that mixed improv, sketches, music and poetry returns to the new Southgate House for one farewell performance. Over the years, many of the area’s top local stand-up comedians have contributed to the show and its outlandish presentations. The experience has helped propel those comedians to bigger and better things in New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles
. “Since many of the show's cast members will be leaving Cincinnati over the next few months,” says comedian and show organizer Mike Cody, “this special reunion will not only be the final local Underbelly, it might very well be the last time many of these comedians will perform locally on the same show.” The list of comics includes Cody, Alex Stone, Mike Cronin, Ryan Fohl, Celeste Brott, Sam Evans, Mack Hardin, Karl Spaeth, Kelly Collette, Vincent Holiday, Mike Guns, Jonathan Caldwell, Dave Waite and several more to be announced. Plus short films by Ben Dudley and Mat Thornburg. $5-$8. The Southgate House Revival Room, 111 E. Sixth St., Newport. 859-431-2201, southgatehouse.com.
