I consider myself a standup comedian. Every Tuesday I've been going to open-mic comedy nights in Yakima to practice my jokes. Saying them to myself in my car. Or even getting a pity laugh out of the staff here at the studios, goes only so far.

If you don't know what this is, listen up: Here in Yakima, there is a place where you can get a free laugh -- where comedians can practice their jokes or even try out new material. All you have to do is show up and provide some laughs. And best of all, it's free to to attend


For the past couple of months local comics have been showing up to practice their jokes -- and audiences have been showing up, too. Providing the laughs. (Even a few pity laughs.)

So next time you need a laugh, keep it in mind.
