Creekside Comedy Night is celebrating its one year anniversary of hilarious stand-up comedy shows at the Creekside Kitchen and Brewhouse in West Ashley with another performance on Saturday, August 18th at 9 pm.

Nias, whose nickname is “GummyBlayr,” is a Massachusetts native who graduated from the George Washington University with a degree in Theater and Creative Writing. She has worked with comedy greats like Ralphie May, Tom Green, Bobby Collins, Gilbert Gottfried, Rachel Feinstein, Marc Maron, Jim Norton, DL Hughley, and Katt Williams.
