What we're about

A great place to find live Asheville's live comedy performances and other local comedy fans!

We'll be posting all the Asheville-area stand-up comedy shows in the area (assuming I know about them). We've met several of you already, and we'd love to meet more of you!

Asheville has a lot of great comedy. There's touring comics performing in larger venues. Asheville is also home to a thriving local scene with great local comics performing in smaller venues and opening for touring comics. There is also a great selection of open mics, so if you ever have the itch to try something out, you'll have plenty of opportunities.

Sharp-tongued and hilarious. Intelligent and profane. Silly and provocative. Carlos Valencia, whose comedy has been described by comedy great Patton Oswalt as "a gorgeous level of hilarious wrong", is a comedy insurgent intent on subverting phony mainstream sensibilities and exposing cultural hypocrisies with an arsenal of unapologetic observations and laugh-out-loud irreverence.
Through years of honing his craft in over 30 states and countless cities from Seattle to Miami, and almost everywhere in between, Carlos Valencia has built an underground following nationwide and earned the respect of both new and veteran comics alike – including the recognition of underground comedy legend Doug Stanhope who tapped him to be his opening act during Stanhope’s Big Stink Comedy Tour; and Netflix star Tom Segura, with whom he did a tour of sold-out theater shows as part of Segura’s No Teeth No Entry tour.

featuring: Becca Steinhoff and Katy Hudson
