Coming to the stage: Bobby Slayton

A rare treat this weekend: stand-up comedy legend Bobby Slayton takes over our 60-seat lounge on Friday and Saturday (June 10-11). Bobby is known as one of the best insult comics of all time. And his show features "equal opportunity" invective -- no one is safe. Should be a lot of fun for anyone who gets to see him up close. Here's a sneak preview:

Just added: wellRED Comedy Tour

wellredComing to the club on June 29: the wellRed Comedy Tour. This features three southern comics -- self-described "liberal redneck" Trae Crowder, Drew Morgan, and Corey Ryan Forrester. The rundown from the guys:

There's a New South and we're coming to claim it.

Comedy and writing partners, Trae Crowder, Drew Morgan and Corey Ryan Forrester are ready to meet the people. You've seen Trae’s Liberal Redneck viral videos, you've read their weekly blog (https://oursundybest.wordpress.com/) and now you'll see them at their best - performing stand up comedy.

Trae Crowder: @traecrowder

Recently earning national attention (or notoriety, depending on your viewpoint) for his "Liberal Redneck" series of viral videos, Trae Crowder has been performing his particular brand of Southern-fried intellectual comedy in the Southeast and beyond for the past six years. Trae is also a writer and is currently a member of NBC Universal's Talent Infusion Program after being invited to their prestigious Late Night Writer's Workshop in 2015.

Drew Morgan: @averagedrew

Hailing from rural East Tennessee, Drew draws on his experiences as a small-town son of a preacher man who has lived in Africa, Australia, Miami, Boston, and (currently) New York City. Weaving his stories together with observations on culture, religion, and identity, he's like Mark Twain on acid, or maybe just a confused Southerner pretending to have his shit together. He is a good dancer.

Corey Ryan Forrester (CoFo): @coreyfcomedy

Corey has been writing and performing stand up comedy since the age of sixteen - before he could legally work in a comedy club. His North Georgia roots have given Corey an affinity for Southern wit and storytelling. He may often wear a PBR hat, but don't assume there is anything blue collar about him. CoFo has thoughts on everything from race to religion, politics and gender. He loves women and cheese. All dairy, actually.

Just added: Legion of Skanks

Big Jay Oakerson just came through town on a headlining gig. Lots of his fans know him from the "Legion of Skanks" podcast -- and now we've got the other two hosts from that show on our calendar. Luis J. Gomez and Dave Smith will play the lounge showroom on July 15 (Friday), and they're bringing special guest Rob Mailloux.

Just added: Todd Glass

Our 60-seat comedy lounge is kind of the house that Todd Glass built. He thinks a lot about creating a great environment for comedy, and his input helped us set up that room when it opened in 2003. Todd still loves performing there. On a regular basis, he'll stop in for a "ridiculously intimate evening" of comedy -- and the next one is about a month away (June 22). It'll be Todd, his signature brand of off-the-wall comedy, the Todd Glass Band, and you ... Check out a few clips, and if you're intrigued, buy early. Only 60 seats.
