Joe Pettis’ Underwear Comedy Party at City Stage

May 21, 2016 @ 8:30 pm - 10:00 pm

Underwear Comedy Party

Joe Pettis’ Underwear Comedy Party

Joe Pettis’ Underwear Comedy Party is a nationally touring show featuring comics telling their best jokes in nothing but their underwear. From thongs to long-johns, there’s no telling what the comics might wear. Or not wear.

What started as a monthly show at the Village Theatre in Atlanta, Underwear Comedy Party hit the road in early 2014. Since then, the show has traveled to over 40 cities and multiple comedy festivals. It was recently named one of the Nine Most Unique Concept Shows in the Nation by Laughbutton one of the Nine Sexiest Things to do in Atlanta by Thrillist.

IMPORTANT!  The Underwear Comedy Party encourages audience members to get down to their undies as well.  If you do, we waive the cover on the show!  Otherwise, if you want to stay clothed it costs $5 to get in at the door.  No advance tickets are available for this event.

Joe Pettis hosts this event.

Blaire Postman

Blaire Postman is an energetic, authoritative, high-voltage stand-up comedian. Her performances include unexpected material ranging from original songs, living with recovering alcoholics, outlining the dark history of Super Bowl halftime shows, the dangers of running like a well-endowed hobbit and a JPOP style cat rap. She's often sort of loud and excitable, but essentially pretty nice.

About City Stage: 

City StagePlans for the old Masonic Building located at 21 North Front Street were conceived in 1897, when several Masonic groups banded together and decided to build a new Masonic Temple. Construction began in 1898 and the cornerstone of the building was laid on May 13, 1899.

The fifth floor of the building was converted to the present theatre around 1914. It was occupied by the Scottish Rite Bodies from 1909 to 1981. The robing room for the Masons is now the dressing room for the actors. The second, third and fourth floors were used by the Masonic and Allied Masonic Bodies from the time the building was opened until 1981.

On June 24, 1982, the building was sold to the Wilmington Holding Corporation. Offices were then leased to the Army Corps of Engineers who also leased space in 23 North Front Street. If you look in the alley between 21 and 23 North Front, you can see the breezeway between the two buildings which was used as a crossover by the engineers.

The building changed hands again on August 31, 1992, when actor Dennis Hopper purchased the property. After purchasing the Masonic Building, Mr. Hopper embarked on renovations of the building. Mr. Hopper then sold the building to John Sutton who is the current owner of the Masonic Building.
