FlagLaffs is a comedy night in downtown Flagstaff, Arizona, founded to give local comics a place to find their voice and providing residents with the chance to laugh and unwind in the middle of the weeks. FlagLaffs is the only consistent open mic night for stand-up comedians in Flagstaff. In the short time they have been operating, their audiences have grown substantially in size as comics fine-tune and improve their performances. #lafflocal

Grab a beer and belly up to the bar with the Bar Room Heroes.
