15oct7:00 pm10:00 pmBackporch Series at the Dairy: Comedy with Rion Evans


Event Details

Zoe Rogers once again hosts the Dairy Comedy show, now from our glamorous loading-dock stage. Headlining will be Rion Evans. Rion is a native of Chicago, but his comedic career began on the west coast in the comedy rich Los Angeles circuit. While D.J.ing for one of California’s top comedy clubs, “The Comedy Union”, Rion became a student of comedy long before he actually made his first crowd laugh. Learning first hand from today’s elite comedians such as Kevin Hart, Leslie Jones, Tony Roberts, and Rodney Perry, Rion’s comedic talents are described as natural and unique. Filling out the bill will be Mandy Kay, BK Sharad, and Shanel Hughes.


Backporch Series at the Dairy Arts Center loading dock. Social distanced seating and masked required. Bring your own chair!

Come round to the back of the Dairy on an afternoon or evening for a live performance. We use our loading dock as a stage, and our shaded parking lot for a safely distanced and masked audience area, to enjoy the irreplaceable experience of real live people putting on a show. Beyond your attendance, we ask that you help us create the space for this to happen by following the appropriate guidelines, protecting yourselves and each other in the communal act of art appreciation with mutual respect. Each party will maintain a safe distance from others, as marked on the asphalt, and wear a face-covering at all times. Let this be an example of how our community holds each other up in times of need.

Concessions including beer and wine will be available for purchase with credit card only.

We will be collecting a cell phone number for your reservation at the time of check out. We will only use this number in the case of emergency instructions via text message such as a weather delay.


(Thursday) 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
