The Organic Comedy Tour w/Ryan Singer & Jarrod Harris at The Altamont tomorrow

The Altamont Theatre presents The Organic Comedy Tour with comedians Ryan Singer and Jarrod Harris tomorrow night. The show starts at 8:00 p.m. and tickets are $12 which can be purchased here.   About the Organic Comedy Tour:   The Organic Tour is a comedy tour and documentary featuring comedians Jarrod Harris and Ryan Singer traveling around the country in Jarrod’s RV. Over the past few years, vibrant comedy scenes have sprung up organically all around the country and have been the life-support system for comedians like Jarrod and Ryan who have one foot planted in mainstream rooms and the other firmly planted in the alternative scene. These scenes are uniquely driven by the love of stand-up comedy by the comedians who live there. This tour will showcase the freedom of the art form that these venues allow and the people who have unwittingly created a place for comedians such as Jarrod and Ryan to come into their own before breaking through to the next level. This will be funny, weird, experimental, and most of all – organic.   Here are some clips of Singer and Harris performing:   Singer-   Harris-   I’ve seen both these comedians live and I can tell you this show is worth a lot more than the $12 the Altamont is charging.   For more Asheville stand up comedy check out our Asheville Comedy...
