This month’s show is hosted by Tyler Sonnichsen. Additional information coming soon.

About Jon and Katherine:

Jon Durnell grew up in the mean streets of a beautiful suburban community in Nashville, TN.  After years of experience in Los Angeles, he is becoming one of the most known unknowns in the city.  He has performed in colleges, coffeehouses, dive bars, theaters, comedy clubs, backyards and skateboard shops across the USA.  He has also performed at the Laughing Skull Festival, the Beast Village Festival and the Scruffy City Comedy Festival. Jon has appeared on Comedy Central and Funny or Die.

19KatherineJessupKatherine Jessup is a comedian based in Washington, DC. Katherine brings a unique point of view to the absurdities of daily life. Alternately called “a good person” and “tall,” Katherine draws on her own life experiences to entertain audiences all over the East Coast. A former cubicle jockey and high school coach, Katherine can be found most nights trying to make strangers laugh.

Be there as celebrate the completion of our first full year of First Friday Comedy shows at Saw Works with Jon Durnell, Katherine Jessup, and special guests.

Join us for delicious food from one of Knoxville’s great food trucks and awesome craft beer brewed by our hosts at Saw Works Brewing. And, of course, join us for the laughter.

The show starts at 7 pm and there is no cover.
