Best Local Comedian

Odyssey Michaels

Readers' Pick

The creator of the local Clash of the Comics competition, Michaels plies his trade at nightspots such as the 9:55 Club and Café Diem. Growing up in Washington, his comic chops saved him from getting beat up. “It’s like those heroes whose ‘abilities’ manifest in stressful situations,” he explains. “It’s like my superpower was making people laugh.” He’s since become a hero to Richmond’s comedy fans.
