Derrick Stroup Stand-up Comedy

Alabama native and stand-up comedian Derrick Stroup is not your average slow-talking Southerner. With the cadence of a pissed-off auctioneer, he locks people in with his detailed stories and over-the-top energy. Derrick tours the South regularly and loves a Waffle House that's clean and cares about its customers. Last time he was in town he sold out in houses much bigger than Attic Salt, so get your tickets early.

Tickets: $15 cabaret seating. $10 general admission.
Dates: September 10 & 11. 8pm
