Bobcat Goldthwait at Side Splitters in Knoxville Bobcat Goldthwait, one of my all-time favorite comedians, is performing at Side Splitters in Knoxville this weekend. At his show on Thursday night, he joked that he doesn’t carry a gun, doesn’t follow football and is an atheist. He sounded worried that his material would fall flat in the South. It didn’t. I laughed as hard as I ever had at a comedy show.

His rapid delivery of outrageous material is just as good as it was when I saw him at Lisner Auditorium in 1988. He started off with a risqué riff on the rescued Chilean miners. I liked his local references, including one about the sign banning guns in the club. During his show, Bob commented that his self-deprecating jokes were working better than a short bit about seeing an advertisement featuring a manscaped Jesus in Pigeon Forge. He finished strong with an anecdote about being on a plane during an emergency landing.

Keep an eye out for Bobcat around the area on Saturday. He asked the audience how long it would take to get to Dollywood.
