The Memphis Urban Laughs Comedy Festival hosted it’s inaugural Comedy Awards show last night at the Height Lounge in East Memphis. The MULCF Awards Show was the kick-off to the comedy fest all weekend. Comedian Caszell Williams emceed with a live band and DJ. Some of the comedians presented awards in their popular character that they act out in their comedic routines; the crowd loved seeing that. There were skits and lots and lots of laughs, as you can imagine.
