On Aug. 31, Eric Clayton and Meredith Armstrong will be taking the stage at The PIT Chapel Hill to perform their first half-hour comedy sets at 9:30 p.m.
The PIT Chapel Hill is a local comedy club that hosts open mics, stand-up comedy, improv and other performances. The PIT has a variety of events on its monthly calendar, and Clayton and Armstrong will be performing on New Headliner Night.
Clayton, a 2017 UNC graduate and comedian, said he likes to perform using a variety of material, from satire to romance to musical comedies.
“I try to take inspiration from day-to-day stuff that people can relate to," Clayton said. "The song I wrote most recently — I do musical comedy songs, like funny songs on my guitar — is about Trader Joe’s.”
Clayton said his inspiration came from the local Trader Joe’s and he wrote a song poking fun at it. He said he writes about things like the cashiers being weird or people not knowing how to drive in that area.
