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.

Friday & Saturday, July 8 & 9
7:15 & 9:15

Tickets $18

Headliner Brad Tassell
For over 25 years a professional full-time comedian, author, speaker, educator Brad Tassell has proven he is not only hilarious, but smart, kind, useful, and the perfect performer for any group, any place, any time. Along with working 40 to 50 weeks a year doing stand up in clubs, corporate, keynote address, conferences, on Carnival Cruiselines, Brad uses his Master’s degree in Behavioral Sciences to bring solution-based interventions, award-winning, and hilarious educational keynotes on bullying prevention to schools, educators, and workshops.

David Perdue is an Atlanta-based comedian, writer, podcaster and “renaissance man”. David’s performances have been called everything from “kind of funny” to “adorable” on stage. A sharp mix of wit & whimsy, David’s comedy is inspired by current events & everyday dealings with family, friends, and even perfect strangers. David’s goal on stage is to give the crowd all of himself, figuring out life’s mysteries with humor. David has also performed all across the country doing clubs and colleges. He is a regular at the Atlanta Improv & The Laughing Skull Lounge. He was a semifinalist in the 2016 Laughing Skull festival as well as the 2016 Laughing Skull festival “Set List Tournament” Champion. He is also 1/3 of the hilarious sports & comedy podcast called “Forth & Ten” (3 comedians, talking sports…kind of). Ultimately all David wants you to do is sit back, relax smile & laugh with him, because even if you don’t, you better believe he will! http://dueordie.tumblr.com/

Joe Pettis is a level 14 stand-up comic from Atlanta, GA. He has been touring the country since 2008 in attempt to one day be relevant enough to warrant a Wikipedia page. His show, Underwear Comedy Party, was named one of the “Nine Most Unique Concept Shows” by Laughbutton and one of the “Ten Sexiest Things to do in the ATL” by Thrillist. As the founder of 1UP Comedy, he produces multiple shows throughout Atlanta. A regular on Doug Loves Movies, Pettis has also appeared on Getting Doug with High and The Daily Riff on TBSjoepettis.com

Katie Causey is an actor and comedian living in Atlanta, Georgia. She graduated from the University of Georgia (with two degrees she’s currently not using) and was a member of the first ever Apprenticeship Company at the Aurora Theatre. Since completing the Apprenticeship Katie has immersed herself in Atlanta’s ever growing film industry working with Burger King, the PGA, and Coca-Cola for a variety of commercials. Katie’s main passion, however, is comedy. Whether she is performing stand-up, improvising with the group, BANSHEE Improv, or acting, Katie loves making people laugh. When performing stand-up, Katie enjoys making current events as silly as possible and sharing stories from her time growing up in middle Georgia.
