Saturday, December 16th, we kick off our first show of Comedy Heights at Lestat’s with headliner Dave Yates.

Dave Yates, born and raised in Illinois, performs across the country and pursues life, laughter, and music. Dave recently helped break the Guinness World Record for longest comedy show at the Wild West Comedy Fest in Nashville, TN. He was also a feature performer at the nation’s largest music festival, Summer Fest, in Milwaukee, WI.

When Dave isn’t touring, he is also an actor for the Heartland Theater Company. In addition to a love for the stage, Dave is an active speaker and volunteer at recovery centers for addiction recovery. Being four years sober himself, Dave knows how to connect on a multitude of levels with people all over the country.

Dave is also the Host of his own podcast called This Dude’s Podcast. Wherever Dave performs, he brings a mixture of wit and whimsy to audiences of all types. Besides performing, Dave enjoys making and selling his own brand of hot sauce called Ha Ha Hot Sauce.

Joining Dave are the hilarious Seth Lawrence, Franklin Yi, Sami Sutker and our own Al Gavi. Show time is at 8pm with the doors opening at 7:30pm. There is a $5 cover which can be used as a same day credit at the cafe. Parking is just as challenging as it was at Twiggs so get there early!
