"Paid Regulars"

When: Sat., March 30, 8 p.m. 2013

Until recently, Oakland held the unfunny distinction of being one of the few big American cities with no professional comedy club. Enter the Continental Club (1658 12th St., Oakland), first opened in 1945 as a eatery-by-day (Christy's Grill) and supper club-slash-dance-spot by night (Rumboogie). The current owners decided to launch a comedy club in the space after a trip to LA, where they saw just how much a supported comedy scene is lacking in their city. Join them each Friday and Saturday night, including Mar. 29-30, as they host "Paid Regulars," their new comedy show of ten- or twenty-minute sets for local comedy talent. 8 p.m., $15. 510-673-8813 or
