Celebrating diversity is awesome. So is laughing. You can do both at the Sacramento Comedy Spot (1050 20th St., #130) on March 1 at 9 p.m. The lineup features Chey Bell, whose Coming or Going live taping is available to rent or own online at Cheybell.com; San Francisco’s Sergio Novoa, host of the My Limited View … podcast; Mike Whitaker from Santa Rosa; and local comic and co-producer of the @movingvanshow pop-up comedy show, Shahera Hyatt. Hosting will be Sacramento-based comedian Melissa McGillicuddy (also co-producer of the @movingvanshow), who took third in the 2018 Sacramento Stand-up Competition. Tickets start at $12 and can be purchased through Saccomedyspot.com. For an extra $3, you’ll also be granted admission to the Squad Patrol show, which will precede the LGBTQ Stand-up Showcase at 8 p.m. A full night of laughs for $15 sounds pretty dope to us.
