I am so excited to tell you that our headliner for the next First Friday Comedy at Saw Works Brewing on August 7 will be the hilarious Jasper Redd.
Jasper is a Knoxville native who moved to San Francisco back in 2002. His first comedy standup special Jazz Talk debuted on Netflix in 2014. He has appeared on Late Night with Conan O’Brien, Def Comedy Jam, and Comedy Central.
The show is free to attend and there will be plenty of delicious locally crafted beer from Saw Works for you to purchase and enjoy during the show. If you get there early, you can also take a tour of the brewery (Visit the Saw Works brewery’s web site for details on tours).
Update: Oishii will be back to keep us fed for the August show, too! Bring your appetite.
The show starts at 7 and is over before 9 pm.
It will be wonderful to welcome Jasper home for a show at Saw Works Brewing Company. Joining Jasper on the line-up will be a pair of great comedians from Ohio, Dustin Meadows from Columbus, and Keith Bergman from Toledo. Dustin is well-known to many Knoxville-area comedy fans having appeared at the inaugural Scruffy City Comedy Festival in 2014 and QED Experimental Comedy Lab at the Pilot Light earlier this year.
Our local featured performer is Victor Agreda, Jr., who is making a farewell run in Knoxville as he prepares for a new business venture on the West Coast this fall. You can read all about Victor’s life in digital journalism and comedy in this fantastic cover story from a recent issue of the Knoxville Mercury.
Our host is Sean Simoneau, a charming and funny guy regularly seen as a part of the team at QED Experimental Comedy Lab each week at the Pilot Light.
I’m not performing on this month’s lineup, but I’m thrilled to help produce this month’s show for your entertainment. Come on out to Saw Works Brewing on August 7. If you thought the first two editions of the First Friday Comedy at Saw Works Brewing were good, wait until you hear Jasper Redd and the rest of our August line-up.
