Riverside Comedy Presents: The Paducah Invasion


Brace yourselves for a comedic invasion of Cape Girardeau! We'll be playing host for Paducah's very own West Kentucky Comedy. Riverside is proud to partner with our colleagues and bring you the wise musings of Cathy Newton, Justin Raye, Jesse Barfield, Clint Holt, Jamaal Gardner, and Kevin Mason!

Join local hosts and idiot savants Tom Cook and Tyler King. Cook returns to hosting duties following his failed "ringworm" youtube challenge. Audiences should expect the absurd and the sudden from Cook from his puns to his takes on religion, politics, and growing up in rural Missouri. King is a long-time comic, host, and juggler with Riverside. Audiences will love his use of wit and music that is sure to leave them in stitches.

Mark your calendars for Friday, February 16th for the Paducah invasion at Cup n' Cork!

Adult supervision recommended. Did we mention this show is FREE?


Cathy Newton: Cathy Newton is a stand-up comedian from Paducah, Kentucky. When she is not on stage she is achieving motherhood like no other. She hopes that her self-deprecating humor will make you feel better about yourself.
Jesse Barfield: Jesse Barfield is a comedian, improviser, and musical wizard. He's performed in comedy and improv festivals in New York City, Nashville, and Louisville. He is the showrunner of Fat Edd's monthly mic in Metropolis, Illinois.
Clint Holt: Clint Holt has been doing comedy for eight months throughout Kentucky, Illinois, and Tennessee. He once earned his public speaking merit badge as a Cub Scout.
Jamaal Gardner: Jamaal Gardner is a Murray State alum and has been doing comedy for a little more than a year. He was the 2016 winner in the Battle of Paducah roast battle and had his tweet roasted by Charles Barkley on air. He bares absolutely no resemblance to Sinbad.
Kevin Mason: Kevin Mason began doing comedy two and a half years ago after his second divorce as a cheaper alternative to therapy. He's opened for touring comics such as: T.C., Coco the Laff Therapist, Nick Lewis, and Barbara Carlyle.
Justin Raye: Justin Raye has been doing comedy for four years and is a veteran of the West Kentucky Comedy scene. Fifty percent Irish, fifty percent Filipino, one hundred percent disappointment to his parents. He was recently voted a finalist in the Top 10 Standup Comics to Serve you in a Coffeeshop.
