Stand Up, Improv, and More at Greensboro's Idiot Box Comedy Club
By David Ford
The Idiot Box Comedy Club in Greensboro. There you’ll find a veritable beehive of activity going on year-round. This fall is no exception with their monthly Knuckleheads production—an all-ages, kid friendly show with stand up, improve and sketch. Comedian Eric Trundy and club owner Steve Lesser are teaching stand up classes, and tonight at 8:00pm at the Idiot Box it’s round two of The 6th Annual Ultimate Comic Challenge. Eric knows the UCC well, as does Idiot Box Co-owner Jennie Stencel. Jennifer is a comedian and improv actor well-known to Triad audiences. From 2006-2010 she was the comedic traffic reporter on WXII-TV whose on-air antics—rapping the traffic report—eventually wound up on CNN, VH1, and MSNBC. David Ford began by asking Jennie how the Ultimate Comic Challenge came into being.
