Aurora Theatre has been hosting the best local and national comedians since opening our new location in 2007. Last season, the series outgrew the name Funny Fridays when Aurora discovered that folks love to laugh every night of the week. This season, Aurora Comedy Nights will be hosted by bright young comedienne Katie Causey, who will serve as host of the newly named series. Katie is a member of multiple improv and sketch comedy groups in Athens and in Atlanta. She is a recent UGA grad and an alumnus of the very first Aurora Theatre Apprentice Company.

with Your Host Katie Causey
About the Comedians
Born in Philadelphia and raised in Gwinnett (a Collins Hill Grad), Mike Albanese finds humor from his everyday life experiences mixed with his internal struggle with paranoia and longing for that perfect girl with whom he will inevitably blow it. Using comedy to cope and gambling to find more reasons to hate himself, Mike’s humor might make you realize that maybe you aren’t so strange after all.
Sassy and straight forward, Dulcé Sloan is a gifted actor, a former Aurora Theatre intern from Meadowcreek High and has been doing Stand Up Comedy for five years. Football fans will recognize Dulcé from her featured guest appearances on the FOX NFL Sunday Pregame Show as part of the “Riggles Pick” segment. She can be seen at clubs and venues all over including the Laughing Skull Lounge, The Improv Atlanta, Vaudeville Cafe and many more.
Renaissance man Bob Place is a comedian who performs at the Atlanta Improv and on stages all over the Southeast getting hardcore laughs. Place is also a filmmaker, as well as a musician performing with his band Swank Sinatra. Bob is also a Collins Hill Grad and old friends with Mike Albanese.
Host Katie Causey is a comedian and a two-time national competitor at the Chicago Improv Festival’s College Improv Tournament. She’s been a part of multiple improv troupes in Athens and in Atlanta as well as various sketch groups. Whether it’s stand up, improvising, sketch or stage acting, Katie likes to make people laugh.
