DOUGLAS & GROUPIES

 

This event was billed as "Clash of the Comics", and it was interesting to see which of the ten or so contestants showed a real spark of originality and comic timing. I wrote off half of them from the get-go for assuming that the mere mention of "fat chicks" rated a guaranteed belly laugh. Douglas was good; so were a couple of others. The headliner, Quincy Carr, knew how to handle the crowd and had some inspired moments. It was a beautiful evening on the fountain plaza outside, but after a few more steps it became painfully clear we were in the middle of Virginia Beach.
