Getaway Comedy: Joe Pettis

Joe Pettis started performing stand-up comedy in 2008 in the hopes of one day gaining enough relevance to warrant a Wikipedia page. He has traveled all over the United States - mostly by Megabus - sharing his mistakes with complete strangers in return for validation through laughter. He has shared stages with the likes of Doug Benson, Doug Stanhope, and at least one other Doug. His two IMDB credits (which he found after googling himself) stem from his appearances on Daytime Fighting League on Adult Swim and Getting Doug with High on VPN. He is also a regular on Doug Loves Movies and pretty much any podcast that will have him. Joe has performed at multiple comedy festivals including the Nashville Comedy Fest, Laughing Skull Comedy Fest, Burning Bridges Comedy Fest, Cape Fear Comedy Fest, and is the resident comedian at the SweetWater 420 Festival. As the founder of 1UP Comedy, he is well regarded for producing some of Atlanta’s best comedy shows. He currently hosts the longest running brewery show in the country at SweetWater Brewing Company. His former show at Joystick Gamebar was named one of the “5 Cool Things to Discover in Atlanta” by Rolling Stone Magazine. In 2017, he founded Resurgens Fest, the only comedy festival in the city to focus exclusively on local talent while raising money for the Women’s Resource Center to End Domestic Violence. Also featuring TBA. Ages 21+ (must have ID with you) Doors at 7:30, show at 8pm, Tickets $15.
