Raised in Gwinnett, (a Collins Hill Grad) Mike Albanese is a food obsessed New York based writer and comedian. He can be seen as a recurring character on BET’s hit show, “The Game”, in 2016 feature film “American Dirtbags” and cooking up his favorite meals on his YouTube channel EAT MIKE. Mike finds his humor from his internal struggle with health, crippling paranoia and his longing for that perfect girl…who he will inevitably blow it with.


Vas Sanchez is a “Greek-o-Rican” comic from Atlanta! His stories of being racially ambiguous and being raised in the rural south are not only delightfully ridiculous but oddly relatable. You can also see him on Netflix’s Cobra Kai, and Better Call Saul!

Named by Paste Magazine as one of the top 8 comics to watch in Atlanta, Jen O’Neill Smith can actually be seen on stages all over the country. Jen has been featured on the television show Live From Zanie’s on the Circle Network and has been a repeat guest on the hit Adult Swim series, William Street Swap Shop. She has also been featured on Amazon’s Audible Comedy show, “Punchlines”.

You can also hear Jen on the hit podcast “Dumb Love,” a comedy podcast about the dumb things people will do for love, co-hosted by fellow comedian, Sally Brooks.

Will there be food or drinks?
Yes! Aurora Theatre’s concession and bar will be open before the performance.

Can I bring my own food or drinks?
Patrons are permitted to bring personal food items and small coolers. Space in the courtyard is limited, if your items are too large you will be asked to stow them in your vehicle. No outside alcohol permitted. 

What does VIP Tent seating mean?
We will have a limited number of tents set up in the Courtyard that provide a shaded, more VIP experience. Each tent will be set up with a table and 6 seats.

What does Premium Seating mean?
Don’t want to bring a chair and want to make sure you have a seat closest to the stage? The Seated section is for you. We’ll have chairs set in traditional theatre seating rows. Seating will be assigned by us based on the best available to accommodate the size of your party. 

What does Bring Your Own Chair mean?
Your ticket allows you entrance into the Courtyard, which is a large outdoor space. We’ve dedicated a section without designated seating.

If you would like to ensure you don’t have to stand the entire show, we encourage you to bring a camp chair. Our staff and volunteers may need to adjust where and how you have set up your chairs so we can comfortably accommodate all of the ticketed patrons.

What is the plan for bad weather?
In the unlikely event of inclement weather, the performance will be rescheduled.

Safety precautions:

  • Touchless transaction – advanced ticket purchase only.
  • Hand sanitizer will be readily available.
  • We are all in this together – please wear a mask when not eating or drinking.
