Carpetbagger’s Comedy Night is a continuously sold out comedy show held on the first and third Fridays at the Bode Hotel downtown Chattanooga. When NYC shut, Jeff (a native NYC comic) moved into the Bode hotel to run a show inside their lobby. Each lineup’s a new mix of NYC comics and Southeast favorites. This week you can check out comedians: Joe Pontillo • Meno Fernandez • Ben Dalby • Charles Newby • Jeff Greenspan • Keith Marcell • Farooq Hussein. Last time Joe Pontillo, Meno Fernandez, and Farooq Hussain joined us from NYC for the Carpetbagger’s Comedy Night, each one was an audience favorite. This Friday, they’re all on one killer lineup. We’re also lucky enough to have Nashville’s Keith Marcell, and Chattanooga legends Ben Dalby and Charles Newby.
Swing by for the “Pre-Show Happy Hour” from 8:00 – 9:00 pm and stock up with discounts on all sorts of drinks and enjoy free up-close magic at the tables! The Comedy show starts at 9:00 pm.
