Patrick Sullivan’s Saloon, 100 N. Central St. in Knoxville’s Old City, is already home to the incredibly gifted improv comedy group Einstein Simplified, which performs there every Tuesday evening. Now, it seems, the venue will hold another night of comedy, this time on Thursdays.
Starting Feb. 4, “Old City Comedy” will take place upstairs at Patrick Sullivan’s at 9 p.m. According to the info on Brown Paper Tickets:
This is the first Old City Comedy event at Patrick Sullivan’s! Please join Old City Comedy in welcoming comedian Mello Mike! Mello Mike has been a finalist in comedy contests all over the Southeastern United States. He has performed across the country and will be headlining the comedy cancer benefit Laughing for Life two nights later in Wilmington, North Carolina. Don’t miss your chance to see Mello live for the first time in Knoxville!
Featuring for the evening will be comedian Nick Shaheen. Nick has performed all over the region and has his own comedy night in Greenville, South Carolina at The Gathering Spot every tuesday night. He has been seen at The Laughing Skull in Atlanta and as a headlining comic for The Crackers of Comedy Tour. Nick is not afraid to say anything!
Opening the show will be Knoxville comedian Nick Edgman. Nick performs regularly at Sidesplitters in Knoxville and also can be seen at Winotheater and has performed at The Comedy Zone!
Hosting the show will be comedian/mc “Super Cat” Matt Ward.
