Running Aces has local comedians this Friday

Comedian Dave Mordal will open the fifth season of the Running Aces Harness Park’s “Laugh Your Ace Off Comedy Club” at 7:30 p.m on Friday, Sept. 14.

For one show only, visitors can hear Mordal, whose grouchy comedy has landed him appearances on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” “Last Comic Standing,” and Comedy Central.  He is also heard regularly on the KQRS FM morning show in Minneapolis.

Although Mordal is from the Land of 10,000 Lakes, he is not known for being Minnesota nice.

Another local comedian, Gabe Noah, will also be featured.

Noah draws from sources such as pop culture, the tribulations of the world of retail sales, and the dark recesses of his warped imagination.

He is known for his ability to double audiences over with laughter while simultaneously attacking their sensibilities.

The evening will be hosted by comedian Ron Lamprecht, also from the Twin Cities.

Running Aces is located at 15201 Zurich Street in Columbus.

Tickets cost $15; dinner reservations can be purchased before or after the show. Call 651-925-4600 for reservations.
