"There's a really good stand-up comedy scene around here," says comic Brad Thacker. "There are probably 15-20 (nationally recognized) comics I could name off the top of my head ... that hail from here." Indeed, names like Josh Sneed, Greg Warren, Gary Owen, Kat Williams and many more have ties to the Tristate. To showcase the next wave, Thacker has put together a free show called Hackamania. 10:30 p.m. Friday at Mayday.
