Einstein has been a Knoxville staple for 23 years, having performed at Side Splitters and, for the past few years, every Tuesday night at Scruffy City Hall (Preservation Pub) in Market Square in Knoxville. These comedians are in demand, doing a weekly show and many special appearances. They were recently one of the featured improv groups at the famous Gatlinburg Improv Fest earlier this year. Several of our board members have seen Einstein Simplified and they have given rave reviews.
