On the “City Lights” series “Speaking of Comedy,” Atlanta’s funniest locals share insights on the perks and perils of their profession. This edition features Atlanta-based comedian Eddie Coleman.

“Putting the unseen on notice inspires my comedic voice,” says Coleman. “I’m the type of person that you don’t want to be sitting next to in church or in line at the grocery store. If something is happening, I’m going to give you commentary.”

He used to get in trouble for that kind of honest commentary when he was young but says he couldn’t help stating what was both true and funny. 

Coleman likes the Atlanta comedy scene because the opportunities are endless and creative, from The Laughing Skull to a coffee shop to someone’s garage.

“As long as they’re willing to come out and laugh, and as long as there’s power in that vicinity, laughs are going to happen, and we’re going to have a good time!” Coleman said.

Coleman will be performing at the Alley Stage in Marietta on Nov. 21at 7pm. Find out more about the comedian on Instagram here.
