It’s been quite a year for locally based comedian Tabari McCoy.
“I was recently in Oklahoma and Kansas doing shows,” he says, “and I’m back home for a short stint before I hit the road to do shows in Little Rock.”
Earlier this year he featured for both Tig Notaro and Jen Kirkman at the Taft Theatre. He also continues to host Bang! Pow! Comics & Comics, the comedy show held once a month at the Up, Up & Away comic book store in Blue Ash.
“We might have some promo items and such that comic book and movie fans might like as an enticement to come out to the show,” he says. “And, of course, you’ll hear six good comics from throughout the Tri-State.”
With all this success, it may be harder for McCoy to keep up his guise as the “black Charlie Brown” — at least one would think. “Oh, if only you knew. It’s actually getting much easier, sadly.” But at least he can laugh about it.
7-9 p.m. Thursday (June 27). Free but tipping is encouraged. Up, Up & Away Comics, 5885 Pfeiffer Road, Blue Ash, facebook.com/uuablueash.
