Laugh Your Asheville Off and the Disclaimer Comedy Lounge launch the festival with a double header showcase featuring twenty of the hottest up and coming performers in the country at the Altamont tonight.
The shows start at 8 pm and 10 pm and cost $10 each, tickets of which can be purchased here.
The 8:00 pm show features comedian Landry. From Landry’s Bio:
Landry is best recognized for his likable hair, sprouting from charismatic follicles. He is a Canadian-born interracial love child whose hybrid existence, when mixed with a little dysfunction, makes for a fantastic recipe of comedy goulash. In 2007 he relocated to Atlanta to hone in on his craft, and in 2010 he took the title of “Best Male Comic” in the Atlanta Stands Up Awards. Taking inspiration from personal life experiences, his writing style carries a unique and passionate tone. Landry is downright hilarious and his “crossover” comedy style appeals to people from all walks of life, age groups and ethnic backgrounds. He was a finalist in the 2010 Great Canadian Laugh Off , the 2011 World Series of Comedy, the 2012 Miller Lite Stands Up Competition and he was the winner of the 2011 Boston Comedy Festival. Landry has appeared on Season 3 of TVONE’s “Bill Bellamy’s Who’s Got Jokes?”, SiriusXM, and has worked with great comedic talents such as Dov Davidoff, Al Madrigal and Greg Fitzsimmons. Landry is a force to be reckoned with. With a smile that lights up a room and a personality to match, there is no telling what great things this young performer will achieve.

Joining Landry on stage will be comedians Rannan Hershberg, Matt White, Kenny Deforest, Ron Placone, Kevin Kinner, Shannon Thompson, Sydney Adeniyi, Carly Mcmenoman, and Gabe Kea.
