Laughs at LACA
Stand-up comedy has become a way of life for Logan Monson, and a passion he hopes to share with members of the community during a performance at the Ludington Area Center for the Arts, 107 S. Harrison St.
LACA is hosting the 17-year-old Ludington High School senior as part of its “Intimate Evening With…” series from 7 to 8:30 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 10. The series, which started in October 2018, features artists in a variety of styles and disciplines performing in an up-close-and-personal setting on the second Thursday of each month through March.
Monson’s set will be the first of the new year and the first comedy performance of the series. He said he’s looking forward to the show, and hopes to use it as an opportunity to hone his talents and, ultimately, bond with the audience.
“It’s kind of crazy that I got this gig because this will only be my fifth performance of all new material,” Monson said. “But people seem to enjoy what I’m doing, and I’m pretty excited.”
Monson’s first experience performing stand-up comedy was at a high school talent show during his junior year at LHS. Since then, he’s immersed himself in comedy, writing new material constantly and building on his act.
He’s already something of a veteran of the performance hall stage at the arts center, where he caught the attention of organizers and LACA Director Andy Skinner.
