Comedy venues are hard to create. It’s more than a stage, a microphone, and available seating. An 11 year veteran of the comedy scene, Charlie Kasov saw a promising opportunity when a friend suggested the basement of Bluebird Food & Spirits, a new bar near Prospect Park. A few months later, he and fellow comedian Tyler Fischer have created a gold mine of entertainment with their monthly “Big Break Stand-Up” show. I sat down with Charlie to discuss the challenges of producing and what he has planned in the coming months.
