Quit Your Day Job Comedy Tour
The Quit Your Day Job Tour is coming to Chattanooga on Tuesday November 27th, 2012 at JJ’s Bohemia. See the rest of the shows details at the bottom of this release.
Quit Your Day Job Comedy Tour:
We all have wanted to do it. Dealing with incompetent management and lazy co-workers every day for years can drive one to the breaking point. For these three comedians, that is exactly what happened. One by one they told their jobs to suck it so they could live a life on the road telling jokes to strangers. Now they have come together to hit the road to spread their stories of freedom and sleeping until noon on the Quit Your Day Job Comedy Tour. It’s more than a comedy show, it’s a living, breathing example of how you don’t have to suffer the rest of your life behind a desk or on a sales floor. Quit your day job and come out to a show. But before you do, put some visine in a fresh pot of coffee in the break room.
Grady Ray- The Manchild
Grady Ray is a self described bi-racial bowl of love sauce and a former police officer in the Smoky Mountain town of Newport, Tennessee. His deep well of experiences coupled with his creative wit melts the crowd like rain drops... White chocolate rain drops. Grady Ray was raised in Cocke County, Tennessee, a part of the country known for moonshining, weed farming, chop shops, brothels and cock fighting. His influences include Richard Pryor, Mitch Hedberg and Tommy Chong. Grady has performed regularly at Side Splitters Comedy Club in Knoxville and recently toured the Midwest with the Crackers of Comedy Tour. When not on the road doing comedy you can find Grady reading comic books, watching Star Wars or playing XBox in true manchild fashion.
Matt Ward- The Stoner
Matt Ward doesn’t set out to offend, but he routinely stumbles into territory his devoted fans fearlessly go with him. He is an everyman and a nobody simultaneously. Getting his start at a hippie music festival in Ohio, Ward knows a bit about herbal inebriation. Matt has shared the stage with Doug Stanhope, Seaton Smith and Kyle Kinane. His Debut CD ‘Glamorous’ can be heard on his Pandora Comedy Channel or purchased through Itunes or Amazon. Ward is the co-host of the Sushi Douche Podcast and also has performed at the Laughing Skull and Laugh Your Asheville Off Comedy Festivals.
J.C. Ratliff- The Drunk
Born into the ultra-conservative Southwest Virginia hills, J.C. Ratliff is wonderfully broken. A product of an Irish Protestant family that also produced a preacher and a police officer, J.C. chose the path of least appreciation in stand-up comedy. Channeling the energy and expelling the vitriol of Carlin and Hicks and the alcohol-fueled epithets of Doug Stanhope, J.C. Ratliff never loses your attention. He is the co-host of the Bone’s Lair Podcast, downloaded more than 200,000 times in 99 countries. His goals include getting free drinks when he performs and becoming the top bar comic in the world, or at least East Tennessee.

"HERCULES" - DWAYNE JOHNSON
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Dwayne Johnson remembers the first time he ever encountered the idea of Hercules. He was five years old and he saw a poster of Steve Reeves as Hercules breaking chains from pillars. Johnson says at the time, he didn't know anything about the myth of Hercules. He just thought it was a cool picture. Now it's his turn to bring the myth to life. Johnson plays a modern version in "Hercules," which opens today.
Dwayne Johnson says he never thought Hercules should be a young man.

ALEC BALDWIN ADMONISHED TO "BE A GOOD BOY"
NEW YORK (AP) -- It sounded more like a warning a parent might give a wayward child -- not something a judge would say to a grown man. But that's the admonition Alec Baldwin got from a judge in New York City yesterday. The actor was in court to face charges of mouthing off at police who stopped him while riding a bike. After examining the allegations against him, Manhattan Criminal Court Judge John DeLury told Baldwin: "looks like you have a short fuse." Baldwin repeatedly said he'd pay the fine, but the judge said he only wanted the actor to apology. The judge set the case to be dismissed if Baldwin stays out of trouble for six months. Speaking to the actor with his given name, DeLury asked Baldwin: "Can you stay out of trouble, Alexander?" Baldwin responded: "Sure, sure" -- then the judge told him: "Be a good boy from now on. Have a good day!" before adjourning the case.
SHIA LaBEOUF SEEKS RESOLUTION OF CASE
NEW YORK (AP) -- Shia LeBeouf has another court date set for September in an incident in which he's accused of acting out while in the audience of a Broadway play last month. The actor's lawyer and prosecutors are trying to hash out a settlement over the incident in which LeBeouf lit cigarettes, yelled at actors onstage and cursed security guards. As he was ushered out of the theater, he hollered: "Do you know who I am." LeBeouf's publicist says the episode stemmed from an alcohol problem -- and that the actor has since gotten treatment.
