With locations across the country, Bonkerz Comedy Club wires a comedic circuit that buzzes with the high-voltage hilarity of local and nationally touring comedians. Atlanta native Darryl Rhoades (September 7–8) dons shades and adopts a conman's mesmerizingly spry patter during fast-moving sets that might encompass the quirks of dating a cocaine addict, a moderate dose of politics absent of any correctness, or ear-reddeningly filthy sing-alongs. Rob Holloway, who compares his appearance to "a very pissed-off Tom Hanks," brings his chameleonic sound effects to the stage on September 21 and 22 along with an indefatigable energy that pervades digression-laden observations of the South, such as North Carolina's somewhat shortsighted decision to sell fireworks at the gas station. TV is often the prevailing obsession with Darren Moore (September 28–29), who blends an acerbic delivery with a laconic baritone whether he's directing his observational eye at infomercials, imitating scumbag TV lawyers, or marveling at how there are no cool birthdays between ages 21 and 100.
