Here is more information from the press release:
Headliner: Tyler Sonnichsen
Tyler began comedy at an early age, then began something resembling actual comedy at a slightly older age as a member of the western Massachusetts-based TDC crew. He joined the Penguins Without Pants sketch comedy troupe in Syracuse, New York, in 2001, writing, acting, and producing shows of various sizes through 2005, when he moved to Washington, D.C., and stumbled upon an open mic somewhere on the Orange Line. He lived and loved D.C. comedy for years, founding the smash hit Laughing Lizard Comedy Showcase (2006-2008), and then founded the Hot Broth Comedy Open Mic Thursdays at the Comedy Spot (2009-still running somehow!), leaving behind some sort of legacy.
Since then, he has performed stand-up in places as far and wide as Paris, Boston, London, Orlando, New Orleans, Chicago, Los Angeles, Oakland, Columbus, New Haven, and more. He’s highly enjoyable to watch, really. You don’t have to know who Night Ranger is to find him funny, but it doesn’t hurt.
He currently lives in Knoxville. He has performed in the Orlando Indie Comedy Festival, Knoxville’s Scruffy City Comedy Festival, Columbus’ Whiskey Bear Comedy Festival, among others (see above). His name is pronounced like Sonic-Sun. Just remember that Tyler is much funnier than this bio is well-written.
Featuring: Sean Simoneau
Sean Simoneau is a stand-up comic and writer from Knoxville. He works at a national laboratory, like the one from Stranger Things, only real and not like that one at all. Sean hosts and produces shows in Knoxville under the Hold the Rich for Ransom production banner. He also bakes a mean loaf of bread and will probably build you a puppet if you asked politely.
Host: Tre Pack
Special Guest: Chris Rogers
