Clownvis Presley visiting Brass Rail

Local standout Jared Andrews will once again open for comedian Clownvis Presley when he strolls through town Saturday, June 11, at 9:30 p.m. for a performance at The Brass Rail. 

The Elvis impersonator/clown helped get me through the early days of the pandemic with his Clownvis to the Rescue livestreams, which he started when his gigs were cancelled like everything else during that time. 

He is probably best known for his controversial appearance on NBC’s America’s Got Talent plus appearances on Comedy Central and The Tom Green Show.

 He tours and performs regularly with acts like Insane Clown Posse, Mac Sabbath, an Supersuckers.

Tickets are $9 and can be purchased via Eventbrite. 

This is a must see!
