Aurora Comedy Nights

Aurora Theatre has been hosting the best local and national comedians since opening our new location in 2007. Aurora Comedy Nights is hosted by bright young comedienne Katie Causey. 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.

October is Gay Pride Month in Atlanta, so Aurora Theatre is presenting a night of comedy featuring some of the very best LGBT comedians in the region, including Headliner Brent Star, the two-time winner of the GA VOICE award for Best Comedian (2013 & 2014).

Read this great GA VOICE article about the new generation of LGBT comics in Atlanta’s comedy scene, including both Brent Star & Julie Osborne.

About the Comedians

Brent Star

Brent Star has been doing comedy since the early 1800s. No but seriously, he started in the theatre in the late 90s. He went on to co-star in the 2000 national tour of the musical comedy A Good Man is Hard to Find, PT2, then started doing his own variety shows where he showcased his different talents. A few years later, he got into drag in 2004 where he learned that sometimes all that glitter can be GOLD. In 2010, after hearing every single day “he needs to do stand up,” he finally went into it. He then combined his drag with his comedy and has been performing all over Atlanta since. He’s a regular at the famous Laughing Skull Comedy Club, and other popular Atlanta stand up spots such as the Limmerick, Buckhead’s Hole in the Wall, My Sister’s Room bar, Smith’s Olde Bar and wherever else he’s in demand. He recently won Atlanta’s local GA VOICE award for Best Comedian for 2013, winning followers for his unique video skits and blogs, featured on the REGULAR GUYS morning show, performed with Margaret Cho, and in the works for an upcoming reality show.

Julie Osborne

Comedian Julie Osborne, born in Cocoa, Florida, comes from a very diverse background. She started performing stand up comedy in 2011 after spending many years using her wit and humor to “deal” with prison inmates as a corrections officer, and crazy people as a manager in corporate America. In 2012 she started hosting comedy shows for the LGBTQ community creating opportunities for herself and other like-minded comedians.
