HANNIBAL, Mo. — Stand-up comedian Jeremy Nunes has been performing his brand of comedy – Front Porch Comedy – all over the United States for 20 years. He can be heard on Sirius/XM’s comedy channels.
Nunes will be performing three shows live at the Bluff City Theater in Hannibal on Friday, Aug. 5, and Saturday, Aug. 6. Friday night’s show starts at 7:30 p.m., while Saturday will have a family show matinee at 2 p.m. and an evening show at 7:30 p.m.. For tickets or more information, visit bluffcitytheater.com.
His stand-up special, “Neighborhood Sasq-Watch,” airs on Dry Bar Comedy. Combined views of the special have exceeded 2.5 million. His first network comedy special, “Who’s with Me?!,” debuted in November 2020 at No. 1 on Amazon Prime. His humor book, “You Can’t Write City Hall,” retells his hilarious real-life experience as mayor of Dawson, Ill., and has become an Amazon best-seller.
“I understand it’s difficult to get people to leave their homes and spend their hard-earned money,” Nunes said in a press release. “Watching a retired small-town mayor tell stories worthy of belly laughs works every time.”
Nunes’ comedy is swear-free.
“Right now, the trend is for edgy, controversial, shock comedy,” he said. “That may work for some, but it isn’t for me. I perform comedy that unites, not divides. Comedy events that are unique and funny are hard to find, so people want to be there.”
Jeremy Nunes is a stand-up comedian based in Riverton, Ill. He is an alumnus of The Second City Comedy Theater in Chicago and has appeared in The Layover, ABC’s Final Witness, and Lincoln’s Secret Killer on the National Geographic Channel. He regularly performs for fundraisers, churches, corporate events and comedy clubs.
