Benny “Elbows” Frederick – “That Guy You Don’t Know”November 29, 7:00 pm-9:00 pm
“Funniest Person in Memphis” and “Best of Memphis” finalist Benny “Elbows” Frederick headlines an all-star selection of Memphis comedians.
Benny “Elbows” Frederick has long been one of the funniest stand-ups and improvisers in Memphis, placing in the finals of “The Funniest Person in Memphis” and The Memphis Flyer’s “Best of Memphis”. Now he’s bringing his unique style of comedy, along with some of Memphis’ best comedians, to TheatreWorks @ The Square on November 29th and 30th for what promises to be one of the best stand-up shows of the year.
Benny is known for delivering an eclectic mix of material ranging from classic misdirection and observation to story-telling, that has been described as profoundly thoughtful, intelligent, silly, and dumb. His topics of choice include his perspective as a literal giant, self-deprecating jabs at his own nerdy awkwardness, and surviving being shot while on a date, with plenty of references to the pop culture he was raised on.
As a stand-up, Benny has been featured on the world record breaking “Broken Record Show” during the Wild West Comedy Festival, The Paul Bunyan Comedy Festival, The Eastside Comedy Festival, The Tim Northern Comedy Festival, The Memphis Comedy Festival, Live Laughs Comedy Festival, and The World Series of Comedy. He is the host and producer of “3 Course Comedy”, a former member of “The Wiseguys” and “M.I.S.C.”, and a current member of The Bluff City Liars. You can find him on twitter and medium.com at @bennyelbows.
The show is recommended for those 18+ and will deal with adult topics.
Beverages will be available for those 21+ with a suggested donation.
