Friday & Saturday, January 19 & 20, 2024 at 7 p.m. & 9 p.m.
The nation’s largest comedy club network is back! Some of the hottest stand-up comedians of today — seen in specials on Comedy Central, HBO Comedy, Netflix, Hulu and more — deliver witty one-liners, preposterous punchlines and hysterical anecdotes that will keep you laughing all night long. Contains adult content.
Headliner Lace Larrabee
Lace Larrabee is an actor, nationally touring stand-up comedian and former southern beauty queen who can be seen at clubs from coast to coast. Lace was a season 17 semifinalist on America’s Got Talent and was brought back at the finale show to roast judge Simon Cowell alongside the Roastmaster General himself, Jeff Ross!
Lace’s debut comedy album, White Trash Cinderella, produced by 800 Pound Gorilla Records, was released in September 2022 at the number 1 spot on the comedy charts. The accompanying YouTube special garnered over 190k views in the first month and continues to climb.
Lace and fellow Atlanta comedian Katherine Blanford (The Tonight Show) co-host the hilariously healing podcast, CHEATIES! CHEATIES is a delicious, juicy part of a well-balanced diet. Every week, these two snarky co-hosts interview a guest who’s either been cheated on or been the cheater. This podcast focuses on the mistakes we all make in relationships and, more importantly, how we overcome them and make it out on top.
Lace is also very passionate about helping to elevate the voices of other women. She founded Atlanta’s first and only all female stand-up comedy class Laugh Lab at the legendary Punchline Comedy Club. Laugh Lab now offers coed classes as well and was voted “2019 Best Comedy Class” by Atlanta Magazine.
Feature Brent Blakeney
Feature opener Brent Blakeney has been ardently practicing his craft since 2011, and he’s not letting off the gas any time soon — performing at comedy festivals and venues with some of the biggest names in the industry. Notably, in 2015, Brent was picked up to be the featured opener for “Last Comic Standing” winner Jon Reep on his national tour, and in 2018, he was named the national winner of SNL veteran Kenan Thompson’s “Road to NYC” contest, earning him a showcase at the historic Caroline’s on Broadway. In 2019, Brent was voted “Best of Fest” at the SLO Comedy Festival in California, and the same year, he won “North Carolina’s Funniest” competition. His first televised comedy set appeared in 2020 on Circle Network’s “Stand Up Nashville!” — and in 2022, he headed back to film a second season with the show.
