Comedienne Janet Williams goes by the nickname “The Tennessee Tramp.” When she arrived at WNOX to be interviewed on the Classic Hits 93.1 Comedy Couch, she was carrying a box of eleven doughnuts as a gift to the staff.
Janet is headlining at Side Splitters Comedy Club on Thursday, Saturday and Sunday. There is no show on Friday due to the Independence Day holiday.
My friend Nate Cate is working as the emcee for the first time this weekend. He told me that club manager Bridgette Martin was able to make arrangements for Nate to get his wheelchair on and off the stage. The club has a ramp that they put in place when Nate performs on open-mic nights but it wouldn’t work with the riser that is normally used during regular shows. I’m not sure but I suspect that Janet Williams graciously agreed to work without the riser in order to accommodate Nate.
