Jan. 12 Comedy Night Side Door Lounge, 3530 Leavenworth St. 8 p.m., $5, 504.3444 sdhillier.com/STEPH/ Local restaurateur Steve Jamrozy (of Flatiron Café fame) renovated a space on the northeast corner of 35th Ave. and Leavenworth called The Side Door Lounge — a place for artists of all kinds. Wednesday features one of Omaha’s up and coming art forms: comedy. Detroit native Stephanie Hillier moved to Omaha and found the stand-up/improv scene lacking. She started working open mic nights and eventually met up with the Workhouse Improv Troupe. Hillier is now the director of the WIT, and brought a mob of stand-up comedians to perform. Austin Anderson, Scott Muilenburg, Don Bowen and Max Lesley will be cutting it up, along with some short form improv from the WIT.
