The Joint, a new coffeehouse and comedy club in Argenta, has finally announced its grand opening. We've been talking about The Joint since January, and now there are actual dates — the coffee shop will be ready for business at 7 a.m. sharp on May 14. In the comedy venue, the first performance is scheduled for June 2. The debut performance will be "Little Rock & a Hard Place," an original two-act play about a man who dies in a car wreck and is banished at the Pearly Gates, sent back to Little Rock, where he died, to help the city and earn his wings. The Joint is owned and operated by Vicky and Steve Farrell, a veteran comedy team, who's work has been featured on Saturday Night Live and NPR's All Things Considered.

In addition to coffee and wifi, the cafe will serve sandwiches, craft beers and wine, and the live venue will feature a full slate of entertainment. Wednesday nights will be improv, Thursdays will be music, Fridays and Saturdays will be the comedy plays. "Little Rock & a Hard Place" runs all summer. In the fall it will be replaced by "Electile Dsyfunction," about the upcoming election.
