Comedy-specific Theatre 99 has held strong for nearly two decades in a changing city, inspiring belly laughs through inspired improv. In addition to a rotating local ensemble of nearly 50 funny folks, the theater hosts touring groups and the Charleston Comedy Festival each January (this year’s ensemble includes Colin Quinn). On Wednesday nights, they still keep their “Laugh for a Lincoln” tradition, where tickets are only $5. There’s no excuse not to yuk it up.
