Friendlytown

A Visitor’s Guide to Friendlytown

Friendlytown is a weekly experimental comedy show that happens every Monday at 7:30 PM at the Pilot Light (106 E. Jackson Ave, Knoxville). Every week, the Friendlytown City Council gathers to address an issue of burning importance to the wonderful little community. Also, we give local stand-up comedians some time up front to work on their latest hot takes.

You can follow Friendlytown on Facebook for the latest updates and show announcements, or to get in touch with the City Council leadership there if you’d like to perform.

The shows are (mostly) podcasted as Friendlytown Radio on iTunes. Because it took us forever to get the podcast going, we are operating on a delay. Below are the list of Friendlytown shows, along with an indication of whether or not they were recorded or are/will be available as podcast episodes.

Check out our 2017 Holiday Mixtape, available for free on Bandcamp because we love you!
