Now nationally recognized, comedian Bob Smiley got his start winning a stand-up competition in his school's student union. As he sharpened his comedic chops as a merchandise manager and MC for Christian bands, he became a popular guest at youth group meetings and retreats for his clean, family-friendly humor. At the Broadmoor United Methodist Church, live music and door prizes will lead into a set by Smiley. The event is free, though attendees are asked to register and bring canned goods for HOPE Ministries' Client Choice Food Pantry. 6 pm at 10230 Mollyleave Drive. (225) 247-9974 or broadmoormethodist.org.
