A year ago, most comedy clubs had shuttered for the pandemic, leaving stand-ups to go to whatever lengths to find live audiences, from parks to rooftops and anywhere in between where they could set up a microphone, an amplifier, and spaced seating.

This summer? We haven’t outlasted the COVID-19 pandemic, and yet, here in the United States, the stand-up comedy business is back in full force. Literally or figuratively, back with a vengeance?!

Just look at all of the stand-up tours that have shown up in my email inbox or social media feed in the past couple of weeks!
