His high-energy style and honest story telling allows crowds to connect with him on a personal level whether they want to or not.
He has been seen on MTV, Laughs on Fox, reviewed by the New York Times and seen on the web series Fitness Fail with the 3V network.
Our host Lauren Ansley:
Based in Charlotte, NC, Lauren Ansley celebrated her one-year comedy anniversary in May 2018.
Despite having no idea what she's doing, she was selected to perform at the inaugural Cola Comedy Con in Columbia, SC (September 2017) and at the Cape Fear Comedy Festival in Wilmington, NC (May 2018).
Her passion to make others laugh and slight southern accent is only overshadowed by her infectious smile and abnormal height of 5’13.
Besides staying busy performing comedy wherever people will let her near a microphone, Lauren has been busy planning her wedding. She's registered at Target, Belk and Match dot com.
MiMi J Benfield, also known as the "Gay of Sunshine," is the funniest/only lesbian comedian in Charlotte.
She first graced the stage in 2012 and has been performing all over from Florida to Toronto, Washington DC to Las Vegas and even all the way to Maui.
She's shared mics with comedy greats such as Margaret Cho, Carlos Mencia, and Jen Kirkman.
She was the taco in the "Sausage Taco Comedy Tour" of 2015 and embarked on Pride Tours since 2016.
She also proudly produced a weekly mic in Charlotte, at Crown Station every Wednesday aptly named, "Nonconsensual Comedy."

lotte, North Carolina. With one-of-a-kind life experiences and a passion for performing, King takes audiences to new heights.
You can find him touring the country playing a variety of clubs and venues. He has opened for renowned comedians such as Brent Morin, Steve Rannazzisi, Jeff Dye, John Reep, Burt Kreischer, Christopher Titus, Colin Quinn, Bill Burr and Dave Attell.
An official selection of the 2017 Burbank Comedy Festival, King was voted Best Of The Fest.
