Laughing Matter 

Comedy open mics are proliferating all over the North Bay. What's so funny?

Page 4 of 4

I soldier on, mic in hand. Luckily, a joke about Paula Abdul gets the audience on my side again. Before I know it, my time is up and I've survived without crashing and burning. With such a thriving comedy scene, if I so choose, I could do it again the next day, and again and again until my act maybe gets some finesse to it. It's a scene that's moving "forward," not backward, says Ricky Del Rosario.

And who knows? Maybe one of these intrepid amateurs will become the next Robin Williams. With so many options for honing comedy and creating community in Sonoma County, it's not such a laughable proposition.
