A group of Chapel Hill natives is bringing the town back to the 1990s — when the members were in junior high and the comedy scene started booming.
The Transactors — who are performing their first show since June, “Way Back to School,” tonight at the Carrboro ArtsCenter— is the oldest comedy group in the south, said member Nancy Pekar.
But the Triangle has since blossomed into a feed city for larger comedy scenes.

Time: 8 p.m. tonight
Location: The ArtsCenter, Carrboro
Zach Ward, executive producer and artistic director for Dirty South Improv Comedy Theater in Carrboro, said Chapel Hill trains more than 1,400 students, most of whom end up in Los Angeles, New York or Chicago.
“The comedy scene as it has developed in the last couple years has been an incredible opportunity for comedians to develop themselves as comedians,” he said.
