Featuring GAVIN EDDINGS
Gavin Eddings was born and raised in the city of Evansville, IN. Gavin was brought up Mormon and was homeschooled during high school. These qualities, along with being deeply rooted in geek culture, Gavin quickly realized the odds of being normal were stacked against him. Instead of fighting for normality, he began doing stand-up in the Fall of 2008. He has performed all across the midwest including Louisville, KY, Cincinnati, OH, and various other places you would probably keep on driving through if on a road trip.
Gavin draws inspiration for his material through everyday experiences, although with a geek perspective. His material usually stays on the side of good taste but he also isn't afraid to push boundaries.
Gavin has opened for such comedy legends such as Bob Zany, Auggie Smith, and Tim Cavanaugh. In 2012, he won the Joke Factory's title of "Funniest Person in Evansville, IN."
Joining them will be local comedian ADRIAN GUTIERREZ!
