Laugh It Up — NWA...

December 29th, 2011

This may be remem­bered as the year the com­edy scene exploded in North­west Arkansas. Although the standup scene in the area has enjoyed many brief bursts of atten­tion before, it found renewed growth this year.

Just this year, all of the sud­den, it came out of nowhere,” says Roger Haak, pub­lic events coor­di­na­tor for the UARK Bowl event cen­ter on Dick­son Street, which books many com­edy acts.

The scene grew on many lev­els this year, from those per­form­ing their first-ever sets to those whose names can be found reg­u­larly on mar­quees and in tele­vised specials.

After host­ing a sim­i­lar event at another Fayet­teville club, local come­dian Troy Git­tings early this year launched an all-comedy open mic night at West End in Fayet­teville. Each Tues­day night, about a half dozen ama­teur come­di­ans of var­i­ous tal­ent lev­els and styles gather to tell jokes.

Git­tings also orga­nizes the Fools on Parade com­edy team, a group of standup come­di­ansthat have per­formed sev­eral times at the UARK Bowl, the de facto home for com­edy in the area. Sim­i­larly, the Expend­ables of Com­edy, a group headed...

Didn’t you guys used to be the UARK Ball­room?” We get that a lot, and sure, it can be a bit con­fus­ing since we are tech­ni­cally a “ballroom.”

Have you read our his­tory page yet? If you do, all the pieces come together and sud­denly make sense, like watch­ing a Taran­tino flick.

Our build­ing has gone through a lot of dif­fer­ent names and uses, but orig­i­nally there was a bowl­ing alley on the bot­tom floor and a ball­room on the top floor. We were THE hip-happenin’ place on Dick­son, and we want to keep that mem­ory alive. We’re still keep­ing the good times rolling! Have you not seen our upcom­ing events? It speaks for itself.

We may not be a bowl­ing alley any­more, but tech­ni­cally you’re “bowled” over with laugh­ter when you see Phun­bags and the Come­di­ans of NWA. And with all the danc­ing from our wed­ding recep­tions, pri­vate par­ties, and con­certs from Fayet­teville Jazz Col­lec­tive and Calle Soul, the spirit of the “good ol days” lives on.
