Duncan Trussell and Johnny Pemberton at JJ's Bohemia on Tuesday August 26th

Duncan Trussell Tuesday Aug 26th at JJ's Bohemia
We are excited to have Podcaster and comedian Duncan Trussell in East Tennessee at JJ's Bohemia in Chattanooga on Tuesday August 26th.  Duncan will be joined by locals and Knoxville's Matt Ward as well as Johnny Pemberton (21 Jump Street).
I was first turned on to Duncan's podcast (The Duncan Trussell Family Hour) by my friend Eric Lang in Columbus, Ohio.  I began to listen regularly and became quite a fan of his deeper discussions on a number of topics including metaphysics, spiritualism and Buddhism.  It is not a common occurrence that Duncan comes to the area to do stand-up, so don't miss your chance to see him live.
Duncan Trussell Bio:
Duncan is a fixture on the LA comedy scene and a regular at the legendary Comedy Store. You may have seen him on Nick Swardson’s Pretend Time playing a pro-meth protestor, or briefly glimpsed his name flying by on the credits to an old episode of MAD TV. In addition to these credits Duncan is also a recurring guest on the Joe Rogan Experience, and co-hosted the very popular Lavender Hour podcast from 2010 to 2012 with Natasha Leggero.

Monday August 4th: Comedy Tonight at Just One More in West Knoxville

Comedy at Jack N' Diane's is on hiatus until UT starts up classes again, but that doesn't mean there is any shortage of laughs on Monday nights in Knoxville.  J.D. Howard has helped get a show started at Just 1 More in West Knoxville.  The bar is located in the same shopping center near the corner of Cedar Bluff and Kingston Pike where the Home Depot and Bank of America reside.  It's a cool spot with some great food and the show is free. This time around J.D. welcomes the 2012 Rocky Top Comedy Contest Winner Monty Mitchell, Knoxville comedy OG Kirk Noland and a Knoxville Comedy scene favorite in Jeff Blank, fresh off crushing it on the July Comedy Booze Cruise.  Don't miss this show!

Nate Cate is Knox Comedy Live's Comedian of the Month

This month's Knox Comedy Live Comedian of the Month is Nate Cate! Nate has been a huge supporter of the scene.  He is one of the comics that has bridged the divide between the alternative scene we have going on in the bars and nightclubs with Side Splitters Comedy Club.  Nate is a great comic that is an integral part of the Knoxville Comedy movement.

So the next time you see Nate out telling some jokes or even just in the crowd having a beer and supporting a local show, give him a hug and a high five and thank him for being awesome.
