Miami could use more laughter in its life. With crime and corruption dominating our daily news cycle, we need every excuse for a guffaw we can get. Luckily, there are more than a few talented comedians in our midst, some of whom recently collaborated on the hilarious and highly lauded web series, Labor Days, a laughable look at day labor. (Haven't watched it yet? Do it now.)
Unfortunately, one of the series' stars is taking leave for Los Angeles -- but not without a farewell performance. Comedian Forrest Shaw (who recently won Miami's Ultimate Comedian competition at Magic City Casino) and the rest of the Labor Days crew are appearing at the Miami Improv next Tuesday, where they'll dole out DVDs and incite an audience laugh riot. We spoke to Shaw on 305 nostalgia, his cats, and why manual labor reminds him of STDs.
