Don Tjernagel to bring his comedy to Ames

Don Tjernagel, a very original and edgy stand-up comic, is set to make his first appearance at 8 p.m. Jan. 25 at Fisher Theater in Ames.

Tjernagel specializes in stand-up comedy with a bite leaving no controversial or raunchy topic untouched. In a world where too many so-called “edgy” comics are just hacks who use the “f-word” to cover up unoriginal material, this guy uses his sharp mind to shred whatever catches his interest, even if this is sometimes his own life.

Having performed in venues from Vegas to Iowa and everywhere in between, this comic takes you to those places that at times are uncomfortable yet funny. If you haven’t met a comic yet that can make you cringe and laugh at the same time, you have to give Tjernagel a listen or five.

“The best dirty comic ever.” – Richard Lanoie,
