If you’re a Valley-onian of a certain age, you probably have fond, alcohol-blurred memories of Anderson’s Fifth Estate, the perspiration-stained Scottsdale dance emporium where so many young brain cells met their end. Well, the
place is still good for a laugh, thanks to local comedy promoter Howard Hughes. Last year, Hughes took over the old Anderson’s location and launched State Up, Scottsdale! – a live-performance venue specializing in edgy, up-and-coming comedy talent like Jay Larson and Bel Glieb of Last Comic Standing. Mindful of the “local first” ethos so popular these days, Hughes also hosts an open mic night on Wednesdays. Make sure to finish your two-drink minimum before taking the stage.
