Mo Alexander at Upstairs Underground
March 6, 2016 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm EST
The Upstairs Underground Comedy Show is the longest running comedy Open-Mic in East Tennessee. This week in addition to the usual open mic fun, Upstairs Underground welcomes a visit from Memphis comedian Mo Alexander and a feature performance from Knoxville’s JC Ratliff.
Get to know Mo:
Standing in the face of conventional comedy for the last 20 years, Mo Alexander has pushed all boundaries of what it means to laugh at a comedy show. The days of a “Fun Night Out” have now been replaced with “Oh, god it hurts! I think I peed a little!”. To say that Mo is funny, is like saying that Michelangelo was a good painter. Taking all of life’s absurdities and creating a night of hysterical laughter is why Mo Alexander is one this industries unknown Greats. Aspiring to be a Comedian since a very young age, Mo takes a lifetime of experience and insight and transforms them into some of the most ingenious laugh riots you will ever experience in your life. Not for the faint of heart, or mind, intelligent and hard hitting are two terms that best describe what everyone that has ever been to a Mo Alexander Show will experience. In other words, if you don’t laugh your ass off at his show, you’re probably dead.
