Sherlocks Comedy Open Mike brings laughter back to a familiar setting. [Sherlocks on West Gray] used to be the Laff Stop, and thats where most of the comedians started, says host/joke slinger Ryan Thauburn. Houstons legendary comedy club moved down the road a couple years back, and the original Laff Stop location was converted into a bar, Sherlocks. But Thauburn and fellow comic Sam Demeris didnt want to see an old friend die. They still got a great stage, great seating its a good situation for us, says Thauburn. Sit back and watch local talent, including seen-on-TV faces like Bob Biggerstaff and Sheng Weng. Or get up there yourself anyone can take the stage, so feel free to sign up. If youre nervous, maybe the $2 wells and domestics will loosen you up. 10 p.m. Sundays. Sherlocks Baker St. Pub, 1952-A West Gray. For information, call 713-521-1881 or visit www.sherlockspubco.com.
