Best Feature Show of 2014: Stupid Brain at the Improv Shop.

Stupid Brain is a standup/improv hybrid that features the kind of tomfoolery that only a pair of adolescent boys trapped in adult bodies could imagine. Enter Bobby Jaycox and Steve Raines. One show, sponsored by hot sauce and the humane society, had an intermission when you could pay a dollar to slap the hosts in the face or go to the back and pet a puppy free of charge.

Best Monthly Standup Show of 2014: Contraceptive Comedy at Shameless Grounds.

Hosted by Stryker Spurlock, Martin Kulash A standup comedy show in a sex-positive coffee shop. What could go wrong?

Best Long-Running Open Mic of 2014: Late Nick's at Nick's Pub.
