Tuesday Night Comics is pretty one of the funniest nights of comedy you will find in San Diego. “Tuesday Night Comics began running January 20th, 2009 to a sold out audience,” said Lawrence. “This collaboration between NCR and Prayer Dudz has proven to be an NCR audience favorite.” Mark Christopher Lawrence will share the stage with a list of his incredibly talented comedian friends.  Justin Rivera will start the night off as the opening act. Following Rivera will be Dusty Nix as the musical act and Dustin Nickerson as the featured act. Don Friesen will end the night as the headliner. “Although billed as rated R, I strive to stage a clean comedy show with the talents of local musical acts and up and coming comedians and nationally known headliners,’ stated Lawrence. “Each show is 90 minutes of hilarious diverse comedy that have regulars and first time audience members laughing til it hurts.”
