Local comics Byron Campbell, Weezy The P, Kevin Tienken and Nick Warner host a night of hilarious stand-up comedy at Tokyo Garden on Saturday, August 9th at 9PM.


This is the second time this group of comics has performed at Tokyo Garden, and we’re happy to have them return after such a great show the first time.

This highly seasoned act out of Austin, TX has played over 225 shows in the last 18 months, including two cross-country tours the last two Summers.

 

They have just recorded a brand new LP with Platinum winning producer Chris Kress, and will be heading out on the road this August and September to promote the new album.
