Local Laughs for Brother Wolf Animal Rescue comedy show tonight

Tonight Laugh Your Asheville Off has an unofficial start to the festival with a comedy show for a cause. Ten local comics will be performing at the Magnetic Field at 8:00 p.m.  Tickets are just $10 and all proceeds from the door will go directly to Brother Wolf Animal Rescue.   A little about Brother Wolf Animal Rescue:   Here at Brother Wolf, we rescue dogs and puppies, cats and kittens from local shelters, owner surrenders, and those who are strays. By taking these animals into our homes, we are able to provide them with a loving, nurturing environment where we can learn a lot about a particular pet.  We get a good feel for what an ideal family would be for a particular pet, because we spend so much time with them.  In addition to all the emotional care we provide, all of our pets are treated for any pre-existing medical conditions, such as heartworms or broken bones, and are spayed/neutered.   Tonights’s lineup:         Host Ben Atkins Atkins runs his own comedy room Tomato Tuesdays monthly at Jack of the Wood and is the host of AshevilleFM.org show Your Only Option, which airs Saturday nights at 10:00 p.m.           Minori Hinds Hinds runs a comedy show at Bobo Gallery and DJs around town.           Art Sturtevant From Art’s Bio: It was the dawn of time — the early 1980’s. DeLoreans and mullets roamed the Earth. And Art Sturtevant was doing stand up comedy. It was a golden age — a time of laughter and Ginsu Knife jokes and Lee Trevino imitations, but it ended suddenly in 1985. What happened? Some say he was frozen in a liquid nitrogen accident. Others say he took a series of field management jobs with national corporations. Just as suddenly as he’d disappeared, Art surfaced again in the open mic venues of 2010.         Pat Hinson Hinson is also a regular at comedy shows at Bobo Gallery and probably has gone through the most dramatic facial hair transformation since I started paying attention to the Asheville comedy scene.             Grayson Morris Morris has performed at a variety of venues around town including the Magnetic Field, Bobo Gallery, and the PULP.       Chris Morgan From Morgan’s Bio: Started in Asheville and has played to audiences in North Carolina, Tennessee, New York, South Carolina and Michigan. His engaging comedy of real life absurdities, mixed with a little of the ordinary captivates his audiences. He has performed in venues such as Asheville’s Pulp Lounge, Athena’s, The Coffee...
