I'm so glad to have these guys back, they are two of my favorite people to talk to in Charleston.  Henry and Maari are the power couple of Charleston comedy and the brains behind the monthly sketch comedy showcase RIP City.  Their humor is light hearted and hilarious and they are always buzzing with ideas.  I got to talk to them about their relationship, their own individual journeys with comedy, and the process of being a creative type.
