After celebrating the grand opening of its theater space overlooking Times Square in mid-June, Ha! Comedy Club has begun to season its oxygen with laughter drawn from audiences by a rotation of diverse comics. Some of the upcoming performers include Shawn Cornelius, a native of New York who traveled to North Carolina to pursue his higher-education studies and to further develop his theories on male and female bathroom etiquette. Mike Gaffney spent his childhood in New Jersey as the class clown, and now confronts edgy issues like addiction and dependency with the unabashed good humor of a survivor.
