When & Where
Super Cat Productions
Old City Comedy is an underground stand-up comedy series based in Knoxville, Tennessee's "Old City". The show was started by Comedy by the Beach founder Matt Ward after relocating from Carolina Beach, North Carolina to Eastern Tennessee in the summer of 2009.
Underground comedy simply means comedians are not censored and no topic is off limits. Our only rule is "Keep it Funny!". We strive to provide an alternative to the traditional PG/TV friendly stand-up comedy shows that most comedy clubs provide.
Old City Comedy traditionally happens on the first Thursday of each month at Patrick Sullivan's in downtown Knoxville. The shows happen upstairs on the same stage graced weekly by Einstein Simplified (every Tuesday).
Tickets for Old City Comedy can be purchased at the door for $10 or you can plan ahead and save a little bread by clicking on the link next to the event date to the top right of this page.
