It was a simple life for comedian Jessie Turney until just a few years ago. He could walk the streets and be noticed as the "I've seen you on stage right?" guy not the "Holy crap! can I get a selfie real quick Kevin?" guy. Turney recently discussed his recented problems just going to the gas station "Three times in the past few weeks its been "Hey man, Sorry to bother you, are you? you're not by chance Kevin Owens are you?" yeah like Kevin Owens is getting a 64oz Mountain Dew at 11pm on a Tuesday in Kansas City".
The similarities are uncanny so if you've stopped Turney recently don't feel bad. You of course can see Jesse this summer performing at Jim's in Nevada,MO on Fri Aug 10th and Afton's in Lebanon,MO Sat Aug 11th along with featuring for comedian Tim Gaither later in August in Iowa. "I guess i'm just going to start doing a lot more wrestling material"

Hollywood Comedy Store regular Davey Wester had never performed in Arkansas before meeting Trey Moore and Raj Suresh. "Both those guys told me to come down and we'd have a good time" said the Washington native Davey Wester. "Trey got in touch with CORE and I went down there and had a great time. Now all these months later i'm coming back not only to Fayetteville but now Fort Smith. That's how good it was, TWO SHOWS! this time" he said.
The collaboration of Suresh and Moore has not only shown a spotlight on the local Arkansas talent but also opened the doors to nationally headlining comedians. Wester was originally passed by Mitzi Shore (I'm Dying Up Here:showtime) back in '03 after moving to Hollywood from the potato factories of Eastern Washington. He now headlines all over America driving 20,000 miles and performing at over 120 shows a year. "These are my people in Arkansas that's why I wanted to get back down there".
It's safe to say Moore and Suresh have helped usher in a new era of comedy in N.W. Arkansas that is just beginning. Catch both comedians weekly in the NW Arkansas area and easily find Suresh's "Semi Famous" on Spotify.
