EOP Presents, Uber & Comedy Wit Productions present the first Comedy on the Clay, a comedy showcase featuring some of the southeast best comics. Featured comics include Connor Preston Bentley and Spencer Taylor, with headliner and viral video sensation comic Hank Denson Comedy of 'Pay Teachers More Money.'
Uber and the city of Duluth will be offering free rides to downtown so you can enjoy an amazing evening of comedy and cocktails while enjoying the beautiful scenery of Downtown Duluth.
Hank Denson, an Atlanta based comedian, has been making a name for himself on the comedy circuit for the past 10 years. He has opened for Jamie Foxx, Cedric the Entertainer, Amy Schumer and Rodney Perry. You may remember Hank from films like Barbershop 3 and the Tupac biopic, All Eyez on Me.
It was a random yet honest moment, however, that led to Denson becoming an Internet sensation. After volunteering as a chaperone during his son’s field trip, a mentally tortured Denson recorded an amusing commentary about his day at the Georgia Aquarium with a group of six year-old kids. His summation: pay teachers more money! Denson received widespread support and 8 million views and counting for his #payteachersmoremoney movement.
Spencer Taylor is an Atlanta comedienne whose style can be described as relatable and conversational, by the heavily medicated. She has worked with the likes of Andy Kindler, Janeane Garofalo, Bryan Callen, Dave Coulier, and Rory Scovel, who can all attest that “she was there.” Taylor’s absurdist one-liners have been featured on Collegehumor and Rooftop comedy; she was also a semi-finalist in Laugh Factory’s Laughing Shot Competition and is regularly featured on the front page of Reddit. Taylor has performed in several festivals, including Red Clay Comedy Festival, Resurgens Fest, Broken Record Show, and Sweetwater 420 Music Festival. Though a relatively recent transplant to Georgia, Taylor has deeply integrated herself in the comedy scene in Atlanta; she was a contributing writer and actor for the late-night style news satire show ‘Good Evening Tonight’, is a recipient of Dad’s Garage Diversity Scholarship, is a member of Left-Eye Improv Troupe with the Village Theatre, and is a regular at Laughing Skull Lounge.
Connor is just a silly dude from a small Georgia town. He's been doing comedy in clubs and festivals all over the country. The only thing he likes more than comedy is food and a good nap. Currently is the host of one of the most innovative shows in Atlanta called 'Filibusters' that combines improv and standup by making comics discuss topics that really show up on a screen during their sets. The results are spectacular and hilarious. Connor doesn't have a Twitter but he does have an Instagram 'connor_bentley_' because that's where he is in his life right now.
