Baron Vaughn
An amazing comedian and actor, Baron Vaughn currently stars alongside Lilly Tomlin and Jane Fonda in the Netflix original series Grace and Frankie.  He also has been cast as the voice of Tom Servo in the Mystery Science Theater 3000 reboot.  See an interview with Baron here>>
Scruffy City Hall
If you haven’t been to Scruffy City Hall, you are in for a real treat.  The building was purchased by the West’s who also own Preservation Pub, Market House Cafe and Uncorked Bar Books and Vinyl Bistro.  Scruffy City Hall, is a 150 seat performance venue that is perfect for comedy and live music
Aparna NancherlaSaturday November 5th
Aparna Nancherla
Aparna Nancherla is odd and wonderful. She has recently released a new album which Tig Notaro and Itunes both tout as great (#1 on Itunes Comedy Chart currently).  She is small, Indian American and quirky. She recently recorded her Half Hour for Comedy Central as well. Check out this article about Aparna in the New York Times
Festival Passes and Day Passes
We do not have single show tickets for the Scruffy City Comedy Festival. No worries, we have made the DAY PASS price what is typically being charged to see each of the headliners alone.  This means you can buy a pass for $20 on Friday and see Baron Vaughn and ANY of the other shows. Saturday it’s $20 to see Aparna Nancherla and ALL of the other shows. Sunday it is $15 to see Trae Crowder and ALL of the other shows!!  Also, if you want to see shows on each day, you can buy a FESTIVAL PASS for just $40!  That saves you $15.

Trae Crowder
SKEEEEW!!!! Wow, what can we say about the “Liberal Redneck” that hasn’t already been shared a million times? Trae got his start doing stand-up right here in Knoxville and won the final Rocky Top Comedy Contest in 2014 (which was how he opened the first Scruffy City Comedy Festival). Now Trae’s videos have gone viral and he is selling out clubs and theatres all over the country.  Check out one of his recenty Liberal Redneck videos.
WellRed Comedy Tour
Also check out the comedy tour he has with East Tennessee’s own Drew Morgan and Corey Forrester from Northern Georgia.  These southern fellas are going to truly make the south RISE again by changing the way the country looks at southerners. NOTE: Trae’s performance at the Scruffy City Comedy Festival will include Corey Forrester, but not Drew Morgan. Therefore this is not a tour stop on the WellRed Comedy Tour.
