Happy Comedy Fest week, Charleston. Now in its 14th year, this four day-long fest features 14 locally based comedy acts and 18 visiting acts, with groups coming from Chicago, New York City, Atlanta, Norfolk, Chapel Hill, and more. Needless to say, there's a little bit of something here for everyone. And most of the acts we spoke to had a least one common thread among all their wonderful, weird, and wacky sensibilities — the topic of our new president. Whether they explicitly refer to him or not, Donald Trump's inauguration weekend will most certainly inform the attitudes and jokes of some of the performers you see this weekend. And we wouldn't want it any other way.
