I’m forever grateful to comedy for finding me. It saved AND gave me life! That’s my goal every time I step on that stage in whatever capacity.

Soule’ Coffee + Bubbletea

2943 Old Canton Road, Suite E

"These are both amazing places to network and get some work done," he says. "A really cool thing both of these places do is they both put on a concert series of their own, giving artists a platform to do their thing in the city, and I'm always going to be supportive of that. The owners of both establishments are artists themselves, so they know firsthand the importance of having a space to be able to express your gifts, so make sure you follow, check them out and stay up on when the next event is at either place. You won't be disappointed."

"This place literally has everything, especially if you're a vinyl lover like me," says Merc B. "I can shop and enjoy live music at the same time. And there is a performance variety which is super dope. From live bands, hip-hop, beat sets, dance parties, and even comedy. Super dope place to hang out and enjoy good music while you shop for it too!"

Duling Hall

622 Duling Avenue

"This is my favorite place to perform," he says. "It's like big and small at the same time. There are no bad seats. Even with its size, it still has the intimacy that artists crave when performing. We recently performed there, and it was absolutely amazing and magical. The location is perfect as well. You can catch a bite to eat at one of the many nearby restaurants and literally walk to Duling Hall, grab yourself a drink, and enjoy the show!"
