It never fails, Geoff Tate will remind you of one of your friends. Maybe a cousin. Maybe yourself. His laid back, conversational storytelling has earned him praise and fans through out the comedy community. One guy, in Seattle, even referred to him as a bar room hero. That’s what he is: a guy telling stories like you’re hanging out with him in a bar. Whether it’s something you’ve done, something you wish you’d done or something you’re glad you never did, Geoff never hesitates to tell the truth about it, however unflattering it might be. The son of a pentecostal minister and a drug abuser for most of his early 20’s, Geoff is the rare comedian who talks about religion without condescension and drugs without glorification. He has been seen on Comedy Central's Live At Gotham and The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson.� He has performed at the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival in Manchester, TN and South By Southwest Music Festival in Austin, TX.� His debut album, I Got Potential, was released on April 23, 2013 to rave reviews. Geoff “has a knack for mining his own personal history for big laughs” (The Capital Times, Madison, WI) and his style has been compared to the late Mitch Hedberg (The Columbus Dispatch, Columbus, OH).

“Tate is so fucking funny that after hearing him four shows in a weekend, I still held off taking a shit until he was done his fifth. No kidding”. - Doug Stanhope

“Geoff Tate is a crass slob who’s life seems to have gotten away from him a bit and I’m not sure he’s going to get a handle on it.� In other words, he’s hilarious.” - Marc Maron

“Rock and Roll meets Preacher’s kid. Mockery+Hilarity+Sensibility=Geoff Tate” - Chad Daniels.

Ryan Singer is the rarest of breeds: A comic’s comic who electrifies mainstream audiences with material that is both uncompromising and unpretentious. He recently released his 2nd album COMEDY WONDER TOWN, which was selected by Under The Gun as a Top 10 album of 2012.  LaughSpin says, “With his high-energy delivery and unpretentious leanings, there’s not a lot to dislike about comedian Ryan Singer. And it’s not just us saying it: In the last few years, he’s won over audiences headlining the nation’s finer comedy clubs and was hailed by Marc Maron in Rolling Stone as a comedian “who should be big.”

His debut album, HOW TO GET HIGH WITHOUT DRUGS, is an intense exercise in wordplay, improvisation, and storytelling recorded at Go Bananas Comedy Club in Cincinnati, OH. Those who enter Singer’s world will be rewarded with knowledge of the connections between dimwitted hunters and Tyra Banks, cookies and racial tension, and even gay marriage and dragons, courtesy of a comedian who expertly connects insanity and brilliance.

Ryan was recently mentioned in Rolling Stone magazine by Marc Maron as a comedian “Who Should Be Big” and both his debut album and sophomore release were selected as Top 10 Comedy CD’s of the year. He was mentioned in NY Magazine as a “Comic to Watch,” he was one of 4 finalist in CMT’s Next Big Comic Contest, is a frequent guest on the WTF Podcast w/Marc Maron, been heard on XM/Sirius Satellite Radio, has appeared on the nationally syndicated radio show Bob & Tom, and was a regional finalist in Comedy Central’s Open Mic Fight.  He was the winner of the Golden Shingle Award at the Rooftop Comedy Festival, an award given to the next rising star in comedy.

Specific Ignorance with Geoff Tate and Josh Sneed
PG-18: Language or sexual content

Ticket Prices

$7 Tuesday, 8:00pm (07/12) 18 and up show


"The complete opposite of general knowledge, 'Specific Ignorance' is a trivia panel show like no other. Three local comedians compete as a team against the audience, however here's the catch - each comedian picks one subject, but the audience write the questions about the subject the comedian picked.. If the audience can think up a question that the panel of three comedians fail to answer correctly, whoever wrote the question wins a free shot of whiskey! (Also the audience gets some points..)
If, at the end of the night the audience has accumulated more points than the panel, as a punishment, the audience will choose one of the comedians to perform improvised standup comedy based solely upon the subject they chose!

'Specific Ignorance' has been a hugely popular monthly show in Washington DC, gaining press mentions (Washington Post/Washington City Paper/Express) repeatedly as one of the Best Things To Do in DC, and as one of the most enjoyable and innovative new comedy shows in the scene today. 'Specific Ignorance' was featured at the 202 Comedy Festival and is starting a road show this fall. The first stop is Go Bananas Cincinnati! Local comedic legends Josh Sneed and Geoff Tate will be teaming up with Corrie Loeffler from the National Spelling Bee to try and outsmart the good people of Cincinatti.. If you think you can drop some knowledge on Josh, Geoff & Corrie then come on down for a night of comedy, trivia and potentially free shots! Follow 'Specific Ignorance' on Facebook or Twitter (@Specignorance) to find out what subjects each have chosen, and start thinking of questions!"

Tom Simmons does an unbelievable job of blending comedy and philosophy into one of the best all around comedy shows that you can see. A true comedian in every sense of the word. He has toured practically non-stop for ten years developing his act and himself. He has appeared on Comedy Central, Showtime, BET, NBC, and has written for numerous comedians. Tracks from all four of his comedy CD'€™s can be heard daily on both XM and Sirius radio. He has appeared on Bob and Tom, at the Montreal Just for Laughs Comedy Festival, The Boston Comedy Festival, as well as performing with Comics on Duty in Iraq and Afghanistan. This is truly a great comedian who has a unique ability to make you think differently, question cultural and personal beliefs- all while being incredibly funny. Seriously spit-take funny. Tom's goal as a comedian is not just to be funny and make you laugh, but to genuinely be one of the best- to be mentioned in the same sentence with greats like Chappelle, Rock, Carlin, Seinfeld. Come see this show and see what constant work and dedication means. Tom'€™s comedy takes chances that most comedians won'€™t take all while embracing the audience and genuinely caring that they laugh and enjoy themselves. The show will entertain with subjects from being a new father and relationships, to socially relevant issues like violence, war, racism, and frustrations we all have with the world and one another. It is easily relatable and seriously funny... Like a Blue Collar Tour for people that read.

Regular on @Midnight on Comedy Central, regular on Chelsea Lately, regular/writer onThe Josh Wolf Show on CMT, regular at “ignoring red flags.” Writer for Jeff Ross and The Burn, Host of the Roast Of Justin Beiber Red Carpet, Host of the CMA’s Red Carpet.
These are the things you know about Sarah Tiana.
But what you don’t know is that Sarah Tiana has been a “working” comedian/ex-waitress in Los Angeles since 2003.
Originally from Calhoun, GA, Sarah's act emphasizes the thrills of growing up after “The War Of Northern Aggression” and trying to survive in the current battle of the sexes. She doesn’t call herself “single,” (she’s too old for that), she prefers to be called “sexually active.”
Sarah’s big break came after she was recognized for her "breakout performance" as Carmen in four episodes of Reno 911!'s 7th season. In 2005, she helped create a sketch comedy company called The Strait Jacket Society as a way to help young actors in Hollywood accelerate their stage time and gain exposure while still having fun (she has currently put over 500 actors through the program).
A downright ‘Merican, Sarah has done over 12 tours of comedy for the troops including Germany, Singapore, Afghanistan, Guam, Okinawa, and several Wounded Warrior Facilities. A trip to Iraq at the beginning of the war is highlighted in the documentary film, "We Love You Mrs. Bevins.” She has been a correspondent on “The Soup Investigates” as well as “Love You, Mean It” starring Whitney Cummings.
An avid sports fan, Sarah wrote for the ESPY awards and the Rob Riggle NFL segments on FOX. She can be seen at The World Famous Comedy Store, Twitter, and numerous unhealthy relationships in and around Los Angeles. She will never be seen in the three pilots she taped last year or be caught dead in the dress she wore on Craig Ferguson (it no longer fits).

Christina Pazsitzky is a Stand Up Comedian and Co-Host of the popular podcast Your Mom’s House with her husband, Tom Segura. Your Mom’s House is a top rated comedy podcast on iTunes and was nominated for the Stitcher Radio Comedy Award in 2013. If you like 7th grade humor, you’ll love Your Mom’s House. She has also started a new and very different podcast called That’s Deep, Bro that combines philosophy and comedy. It’s serious questions with silly people.

Catch Christina this fall on the Tru TV show How to be a Grown Up and TBS’ Funniest Wins with Marlon Wayans. Christina has been a Round Table Regular and Writer on the popular E! show Chelsea Lately. You’ve seen her stand up on the Showtime special Red Light Comedy filmed in Amsterdam, TV Guide Channel’s Stand Up in Stilettos and Nuvo TV’s Stand Up and Deliver. She’s also performed at the Aspen Comedy Festival, Moontower Comedy Festival, Lucy Fest, and Gilda’s Fest. Christina headlines comedy clubs in the U.S., Canada and has performed for the troops (Our troops, not THEIRS) in Afghanistan, South Korea, UAE and Africa.

Pazsitzky also provides deeply sarcastic pop culture commentary on several Vh1 countdown shows, TV Guide Channel, SyFy Channel’s Insane or Inspired, Tru TV’s World’s Dumbest and E! Television’s Wildest TV Moments. She hosted the FX series Hitchhiker Chronicles, was a cast member on MTV’s Road Rules Australia (back when it was cool, thank you) and was a regional finalist on Season 6 and 7 of NBC’s Last Comic Standing. With a background in animation, Christina has written on and lent her voice to several animated projects, like the feature film TV: The Movie with the boys from MTV’s Jackass and the television series, Trolls. She was given Animation Magazine’s “Up and Coming Writer” Award and most recently wrote on the feature film InAPPropriate Comedy.

Before becoming a Comedian, Pazsitzky studied Philosophy at Oxford University, dropped out of Law School after two WHOLE weeks and was Goth for more years than she’d care to admit. She’s a huge fan of the Pixies and once met Kim Deal.
