Comedian Lee Camp at the Altamont tonight

Comedian Lee Camp will be taking the stage at the Altamont Theater tonight at 8:00 p.m. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased here.   About Camp: “This up-and-coming US star is already developing a reputation for fearless political comedy, with some calling him an heir to the crown of the late, great George Carlin. ….He gets our seal of approval.” –Time Out Sydney “Gets the crowd roaring!” –Rolling Stone “Lee Camp is an amazing writer and a great political thinker. He’s the change you and I want to see.” –Janeane Garofalo “For those comedy fans still in mourning for Bill Hicks 18 years on, you’ll find plenty to enjoy in the work of DC-born stand-up Lee Camp. Like Hicks, Camp has a visceral disregard for big business and big politics, and speaks his mind on everything from abortion rights to the evils of the modern media. However, where Hicks was more of a commentator who stayed above the fray, Camp is much closer to British activist-comics like Mark Thomas, a real-life serial protester.” –The Guardian “Like Jon Stewart from the Daily Show but with sharper teeth.” –the Herald   Here is a clip of Camp performing:     For more Asheville stand up comedy check out our Asheville Comedy...
