New Shows: DeRay Davis and James Renner


We'll go in chronological order. On June 13 in our lounge showroom, we're dipping our toes in the "true crime" pool. Author James Renner will present his funny (and frightening) insights into America's obsession with true crime stories. Tickets are $15.

In July, we've got something kind of new: A stand-up is headlining two weeks in a row. DeRay Davis will have our stage July 5-7 and also July 11-14. He's a great performer and we do expect both weeks to be packed.

Schedule Update and New Shows


We've had another schedule shuffle. Brad Williams recently informed us that he is no longer available for shows April 4-7. He has been relocated to Labor Day weekend (Aug. 29 - Sept. 1).

Stepping in to take Brad's place in April: the great Tim Dillon. He headlined our lounge for a weekend in 2017 and he had a great 2018, with specials on Netflix and Comedy Central. He's doing five shows, April 4-6.
