Voted Atlanta’s best comedy club in Creative Loafing 2009–2011, Laughing Skull's stage presents national and local comedians in an intimate 74-seat room. Graham Elwood (May 17–20) has been faced with some tough rooms: the Late Late Show and Sarah Silverman Program vet has embarked on five USO tours across Afghanistan and Iraq, inspiring him to direct a documentary on the subject and found a charity to raise funds for returning vets.
