The show is presented by SM3 Media, Manazhe ‘and Hue Baby Entertainment.

Patterson said precautions will be taken on Friday, including wearing face coverings, to ensure the event remains safe for COVID-19.

It will be the first pop-up comedy return to Morganton since COVID-19 shut down many entertainment functions last year.

But the pandemic has not held back Patterson.

He told the News Herald he was also nominated for Comedian of the Year through the Queen City Awards, a charity event that recognizes talented performers from across the Carolinas while raising money to create scholarships for local students, according to the QCA website.
