On Sunday, July 25 join New York Times bestselling author Wiley Cash and his brother Cliff Cash, whose recent comedy album rocketed to #1 on iTunes, for an evening of stand-up, stories, and a discussion about being brothers, growing up in the South, and writing and laughing about it all. The evening will close with an audience Q&A. This is their first ever public appearance together in Asheville. Please join us.
Wiley Cash is the New York Times bestselling author of A Land More Kind Than Home. He’s been a fellow at Yaddo and the MacDowell Colony, and he teaches fiction writing and literature at the University of North Carolina-Asheville, where he serves as Alumni Author-in-Residence. His new novel, When Ghosts Come Home, will be available September 21. He lives in North Carolina with his wife, photographer Mallory Cash, and their daughters.
Cliff Cash is the funniest guy you haven’t heard of (yet). Kevin Nealon called him a mix between Rory Scovel and Bill Hicks. Kristine Levine of Portlandia called his set “Chef’s kiss perfect”.
His style of comedy has been called “more than just funny” and said to “embody the new south”. A south yearning to be seen as more than camouflage and racism, a generation of young Americans bucking the often archaic values and dogma they were raised on. His brand of humor fearlessly tackles subjects of racism, homophobia, greed, war, loss, death, divorce and the danger of ignorance in pop culture and music. One moment he’s using a satirical uber conservative redneck character to illuminate the fallacies of the far right talking points. The next moment he cleverly dissects some of today’s most absurd rap lyrics. Cash remains dynamic and unique from the time he steps on stage until he says goodnight.
When he’s not on stage, Cliff spends most of his time in nature. He’s on a mission to see #everynationalpark and put a million miles on his Mercedes wagon that he essentially lives in #miIlionmilemercedes. In 6 short years Cash has racked up an impressive list of credits for a comic not living in a major market, including:
Comedy Central UpNext, Standup NBC finalist, Comedy Central Sirius XM, Rawdog Sirius XM, Laughs on FOX, Port City’s Top Comic winner, Denver Comedy Works Thick Skin winner, Comedy Zone’s Almost Famous winner, SLO Comedy Festival best of the fest winner, Rooftop Comedy, Cape Fear Comedy Festival, Norfolk Comedy Festival, Treefort Comedy Festival headliner, Altercation Comedy Festival headliner, Standup Records.
He was the creator and manager of the Sick of Stupid Comedy Tour that sold out iconic Comedy rooms like the Atlanta Punchline, Asheville’s Mill Room,The Comedy Attic and many others.
He’s played great clubs like Zanies Nashville, Goodnights, Carolines, The Stand, Improvs, Comedy Zones, The Grey Eagle, Wilbur Theater, Wyatt Cenacs Night Train NYC, Knitting Factory NYC, Freaknik, Rabbithole at Nerdmelt, Comedy Sauce LA, UnCabaret LA and other clubs, casinos and colleges around the country.
Cash has opened for/done shows with: Kevin Nelson, Dave Attell, Ari Shafir, Bert Kreischer, Michael Che, Moshe Kasher, Judah Freidlander, Rory Scovel, Sam Morrill, Mike Lawrence, Alonzo Bodden, Todd Glass, Nikki Glaser, Wyatt Cenac, Ron Funches, Michael Ian Black, Ronny Chieng and other great comics.
I am now done saying nice things about myself in third person. Thanks for sticking it out. I know that was weird for both of us. Let’s do some laughing.
