Despite a change in venue, WonderComedy hasn't missed a beat. The indie-scene staple consistently pumps out stellar shows featuring the best stand-up Atlanta and the rest of the country has to offer each month for an energetic and loyal audience that's as comedy savvy as you'll find anywhere. With chill vibes and a helpful B.Y.O.B. policy, there's no better place to gather for laughter and camaraderie than the third Friday of every month at WonderComedy.

There’s no place in the world where Monday’s met with excitement — nowhere but Little Five Points. MONDAY NIGHT COMEDY AT STAR BAR, the longest-running comedy show in the A, has been stuffing the smoke-tinged rock venue with the city’s funniest comedians, the up-and-comers, and the doe-eyed first-timers to a passionate crowd for more than a decade. It’s where many dipped their toes in the water for the first time and it’s where they later recorded their first albums. Rodney Leete has been MCing this free weekday marathon of who’s who in not just our local comedy scene but the whole country, as the show has become a favorite drop-in destination for famous funny people like Hannibal Buress, Rory Scovel, Vanessa Bayer and more. 437 Moreland Ave. N.E. 404-500-4942. www.rotkneepresents.com. less...

When “Saturday Night Live” is signing off, the 1AM SECRET SHOW is just getting started over at Smith’s Olde Bar. Current hosts David Perdue, Anthony Driver, and Olive Lynch wrangle boozy crowds in a packed room each week. The lineup isn’t revealed until showtime and rarely is set before then, either, as the hosts are trying to snag visiting big-name comics. After a weekend of two-drink-minimum crowds, headliners love to burn the midnight oil at a dive show where anything goes. Past performers include Hannibal Buress, Mary Lynn Rajskub, and Rory Scovel. If there is a big name in town, you’re almost guaranteed to see them at the 1AM. less...

Brian Emond, Joel Ruiz, and Zach Lamplugh’s sketch group/live show LADIE’S NIGHT is a must-see comedy shindig that’s bringing the stand-up and film communities together. Throwing down first Thursdays of the month at the Village Theatre, each show features stand-ups and three new video sketches from the boys as well as fellow local filmmakers. The show celebrates comedy as silly as its moniker, a typo the founders decided to run with. The trio has crafted delightfully absurd DnD parodies and trivial crowdsourcing campaigns asking generous folks to buy Emond a beer. Ladie’s Night pried open the floodgates to new sketch groups and tapped the local film community’s comedic genius. While the first shows were stretched thin for outsider material, today the trio’s inbox is swamped with submissions every month. www.whyladiesnight.com. less...

Radio was the last thing on MISS SOPHIA’s mind when the cross-dressing comedian moved here from Houston to further her stage career. But since taking over the entertainment-report duties on V-103’s “Frank and Wanda Morning Show,” she has become a show staple and a listener favorite. Her trademark “Girl Talk” is full of brash, balls-to-the-wall humor and unruly commentary. She gets away with saying things other people can’t — even when the people she’s saying those things about are the sacred cows of Atlanta’s entertainment community. Far from a traditional drag queen, Miss Sophia’s intent isn’t to fool you with her cheap wigs and ill-fitting church-lady dresses. Rather, she’s out to make you laugh — with her or at her. Just don’t have too much fun at her expense, because Miss Sophia always gets the last laugh.
