Introducing The Last Draft Comedy Showcase

March 5, 2024

A variety comedy hour, with a focus on stand-up comedy, at The ArtsCenter

“The Last Draft Comedy Showcase is a variety comedy hour, with a focus on stand-up comedy. Over the last five years, I have had the pleasure of meeting and performing with some of the funniest comics in North Carolina. The last draft is often what comics strive for; be that the perfect joke, a new five-minute set, or a full hour of original material. In my experience, comedy  is always changing and a script often represents the last draft before a performance instead of a final product. Stand-up comedy has always been an opportunity for me to share my perspective on life while entertaining a wider audience. So, The Last Draft Comedy Showcase is an opportunity for a rotating, diverse group of local talents to share their unique experiences on stage.” – Jonah Lewis

Jonah Lewis Bio

Jonah Lewis is a 24-year-old stand-up comedian from Chapel Hill, NC. For the last five years, he has traveled the state appearing in breweries, bars, and once even a chili cook-off! After completing the SNL Scholars Program in 2021, he has gone on to write for The Squeaky Wheel, perform across the East Coast, and produce shows with the People’s Improv Theater in New York City. He has appeared alongside comedians like Judah Freidlander, and he was a semifinalist in North Carolina’s Funniest competition at Goodnight’s Comedy Club in 2021. 

Charles Andrews Bio

This (he/him) New York City bound comic writer and performer resides in Carrboro, NC. All things hilarious are encouraged, there is no better medicine than laughter.

Isatu Kamara Bio

Don’t worry if you’ve never met an Isatu before! The name is quite common in West Africa…almost like Ashley. And like Ashleys, Isatus are incredibly terrible people too. Just kidding…Isatus are totally normal!  This very normal Isatu got her comedy start right here in the triangle and was the second runner up in North Carolina’s Funniest competition at Goodnight’s Comedy Club in 2021. She has opened for many funny comics at the Raleigh Improv and Goodnights such as Liza Treyger, Esther Povitsky, and Jay Jurden! Of her paltry 600 instagram followers, you can find Nikki Glaser, Gary Gulman and Chelsea Handler. Clearly, she is a hoot.

Jenna Hall Bio

Jenna Hall knows more about the murder of Jon Benet Ramsey than anyone else at this party. The co-host of the Dead Girls Talking Podcast and a storyteller by trade, she travels all around the Southeast swinging cautionary tales for mozzarella sticks.
