    No one, not even founder and emcee Rotknee seems to know when the first-ever Star Bar Mondays comedy night happened, but it's been "running for about 9 years," according to the infrequently updated blurb on the Little Five Points rock venue's website. Unlike comedy nights that depend on marquee names and promoted events, comedians are instructed to call Rotknee at 5 p.m. the Thursday before they'd like to perform. He turns his phone off for a couple minutes, and then calls back on a first-come-first-serve basis. From 8 p.m.-midnight on any given Monday, you might see an awkward first timer, a hilarious, experienced local, or a semi-famous nationally touring talent. Kyle Kinane, Eric Andre, Margaret Cho, and Ryan Singer have all gone up; Joe DeRosa recently recorded an album there. Be nice to those newbies, though. Star Bar's crowd is known for its open mind, a rare asset in comedy crowds, and it's not like you paid to get in, anyway. less...
