We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you. DONATE

Jeff Dye

Friday Jan. 28-Saturday Jan. 29 @ Wiseguys West Valley City



While most Utahns probably remember Season 6 of Last Comic Standing as when local comic Marcus took second place, some may also recall the man who took third, Jeff Dye. With his frat-boy good looks and relatively clean—yet charmingly twisted—jokes, Dye is a cross between Dane Cook and Jimmy Fallon.

At age 27, Dye is one of the youngest headlining comedians in the business today, and his rise to stardom has been uncommonly fast. His career began in Seattle where, at age 23, he was a semifinalist in the Seattle International Comedy Competition. He quickly started earning top awards at other comedy competitions and gaining recognition as one of the hottest new comedians in America.

Since LCS, Dye has gone on to perform at the prestigious Chicago Just for Laughs Festival. His own half-hour Comedy Central special aired in 2010, and he continues to perform and build his fan base all over the country.

Jeff Dye @ Wiseguys Comedy Café, 2194 W. 3500 South, West Valley City, 801-463-2909, Jan. 28-29 @ 7 & 9 p.m., $15.
