Funny Business Moving Comedy Shows from The Millroom to The Grey Eagle
Starting in 2017, Funny Business’ Comedy Shows will be at The Grey Eagle

Asheville, NC: Funny Business is excited to announce that in 2017 our comedy shows will be at The Grey Eagle.

With the announcement of The Millroom’s plans to transform their space and close to the public, Funny Business will be holding their upcoming comedy shows at The Grey Eagle.

We were sad to hear that The Millroom will be closing to the public,” says Funny Business’ Michael Yoder. “We want to thank them for three great years working together to bring consistent, high-quality comedy shows to Asheville. They were incredibly hospitable not only our guests but the talent as well. We’re excited for our new venture at The Grey Eagle – a fantastic venue that has a great set-up for comedy shows.”

Funny Business has brought to Asheville Josh Gondelman, James Adomian, Andy Hendrickson, Jarrod Harris, Tom Simmons, Stewart Huff, Shane Mauss, Jon Reep, Grant Lyon, Sean Donnelly, Andy Woodhull, Andy Sandford, Caleb Synan, Reformed Whores, Julie Scoggins, AJ Finney, Mark Normand, Grant Lyon, Aaron Kleiber, Sara Schaefer, Tom Green, Vince Morris, Lisa Landry, Dave Stone, Ryan Dalton, Paul Hooper, Joe Zimmerman, Wyatt Cenac, Steve O, Bobcat Goldthwait, Duncan Trussell, Bengt Washburn, Nate Bargatze, Rodney Laney, and Mike Lawrence.

The first two shows at The Grey Eagle have been announced: Erin Foley (TruTV, NBC, CONAN, Comedy Central) headlines on Saturday, January 28.

The second is a Valentine’s Show with Bengt Washburn (CBS, CONAN, Comedy Central) on Saturday, February 11, featuring two shows on the same night at 7:00 p.m. and 9:30 p.m.
