The Palace Theater


Welcome to the Palace Theater. Chattanooga's only independent theater!


Cut Throat Comedy

August 10th - 9pm  (8pm Doors, Show at 9) - 18 PLUS

Standup comedy is not a team sport. That’s why at
Cut-Throat Comedy, hosts Ben Dalby and Ryan Darling force three teams of two comedians to work together. Teams will compete in games that resemble classic game shows you love, with just enough difference to keep the producers from getting sued. Each round one team is eliminated. The winning team has the opportunity to share the spotlight together or betray their teammate and have the mic all to themselves. All of this teamwork and betrayal  combined make for a night of great games and hard earned performances by some of the best comedians in the area.

Cut-Throat Comedy is produced by Ryan Darling and Ben Dalby and runs monthly at the Palace Theater in Chattanooga, TN.

“Brilliant, effortless charm lets her get away with Murder”"– The Telegraph (UK) 

Internationally acclaimed comedian, writer and columnist DeAnne Smith captivates audiences with “nerdy but dirty” yet progressive cutting edge satire regarding feminism, sexism, modern language and multi gendered relationships. With over 48 million views on her Facebook video she gives straight guys advice on “stepping up their game” because she, “doesn’t have time for ALL your ladies”.

She’s a sensitive, liberal educated lesbian who’s trying to navigate the minefield that is urban life and isn’t afraid to get political such as when deconstructing sexist American Apparel ads and the ridiculous expression “feminazi” all the while cheerfully expressing her personal erotic desires. Can she flirt with the ladies in the audience and make lewd yet charming references with her fingers ??? (You Bet).

In addition to her career as a stellar comedian DeAnne has written and performed four full length stand up shows all of which have played to critical acclaim and been nominated for numerous awards in the U.S., Canada and Australia. She has performed extensively on radio and guested on the HBO TV series “Funny as Hell” along with appearing on Last Comic Standing.

DeAnne is ready to take her show on the road to the “Sunny South”. While she is an internationally renowned performer, she has minimal exposure in the Southeastern United States. Recognition of a devoted regional fan base has inspired her to seek live dates for devotees as well as share her hijinks with the uninitiated.

DeAnne is pleased to team with Maverick Entertainment Partners, LLC as her Southeastern U.S. event coordinator. She is actively seeking to book dates for the Summer and Fall of 2018. For further booking information contact Scott Orr, Managing Partner, 615-734-9932 or .

Flashlight Shows Presents: GEMS / Psychic Dungeon / Jim Shorts

September 16th

Doors at 7 / Show at 8 - All Ages

Come hang on a Sunday evening! Y'all know we only pick the best bands for our best frands. Here's what we got u:

*Galactic Engineers of Magnetic Sounds - GEMS (formerly Future Elevators) - "G.E.M.S. is a husband and wife duo based in Birmingham. Michael & Ashley felt the music had a magnetic appeal to it so the project was named Galactic Engineers of Magnetic Sounds. So far the songs vary with styles that weave and flow from chill melody driven hooks and dreamy feels to raw guitar driven music with a fresh yet classic approach. If John Lennon and Charlie Watts started a might sound something like this. If you like Tame Impala, Radiohead, Sonic Youth, Brian Wilson, and Velvet Underground.....
...then this may appeal to you."

*Psychic Dungeon - local secret superband. come out to find out.

*Jim Shorts (solo) - "A whirlwind of semisweet melodies usually served on a platter of fuzz"
