Happy Anniversary to Blue Ridge Comedy Club

August 29, 2022

Shawn Carter started in comedy in Boston about 15 years ago and produced many shows and open mics around the city as well as performing in shows and festivals across the country.

After Covid interrupted a planned tour, he and his wife, Sarah, moved to her hometown, Bristol. In 2021, they opened a comedy club in downtown Bristol - Blue Ridge Comedy Club.

This August, the club celebrated its one-year anniversary.

They received a Believe in Bristol grant which will help upgrade some of the performance space as well as extend the teaching curriculum (improv, writing, etc.).

Shows are Wednesday through Saturday with something for everyone. Wednesdays are Open Mic night. Everyone is welcome, whether it’s your first time on stage or you’re a seasoned veteran.
