Best Alt-Comedy Promoter

When it comes to local stand-up, Seth Pomeroy isn’t in the loop, he is the loop. The 38-year-old’s monthly regional showcases at East Nashville’s Anaconda Vintage and pop-up shows for bigger-name comics at Soft Junk strategically built rapport between Southern stand-ups and their L.A. brethren. Pomeroy is pathologically dedicated to the craft and to his community, and you won’t find a bigger believer in comedy’s ability to move mountains in a broken society. Pomeroy has also spent the past half-decade on a documentary about comedian-musician, Scene contributor and all-around eccentric Chris Crofton that hopefully the forced quarantine has brought closer to fruition.
