The brand-new Levity Live Comedy Club celebrates its first full year of laughs with a calendar chock-full of performances from nationally touring comedians. During a six-show set, Bobby Slayton gallops into Levity trumpeting his gruff, gravelly voice that has scuffed up the sound waves of HBO, The Tonight Show, and films such as Get Shorty and Dreamgirls. Touring in the wake of his new CD, Bobby Slayton: Born to be Bobby, the 20-year veteran of the comedic trenches barks rapid-fire punch lines that take aim at everyday life and its surplus of mundane pet-tarantula chores.
As Slayton shows why critics call him a true “comic’s comic,” duos can watch and dodge pies from the club’s sleek wooden chairs or plush booths. Though food and drink are not covered with this Groupon, cold cocktails refresh laugh-laden gullets at the bar, and Metromix’s 2007 Chef of the Year, Joey Campanaro, scripts a menu of upscale American comfort food in the kitchen, where comedians can be seen constantly trying to deep-fry the FCC’s bleep machine.
