The award winning Backdoor Comedy Club is the city’s longest running stand-up comedy showcase and, after 20 years, still reigns as the hot spot for Dallas comedy. Named “Best Comedy Club” by D Magazine and “hottest stand-up comedy showcase in the Southwest” by the Dallas Observer, Backdoor Comedy Club is the place to go for laughs. Shows feature eight or more comedians per night, including national touring comics from Comedy Central, Showtime and NBC’s Last Comic Standing, as well as the best of the local pros. The coziness of the Backdoor takes you back to the roots of stand-up and gives you the intimate vibe of the original comedy rooms in NYC and LA.

Four-time GRAMMY® Award-nominated Tauren Wells debuted his solo music in 2017 with the dance-able pop hit, “Love Is Action”, which held the No. 1 spot at CHR radio for eight weeks and the hard-hitting “Undefeated” featuring rapper KB. Those hits were then followed by the now GRAMMY-nominated “Hills and Valleys”, the piano and cello-driven thought-provoking track that quickly climbed the radio and sales charts and jumped to the Top 10 at the Christian Airplay radio chart for multiple weeks. The following single, “When We Pray” also hit the Top 10 at Christian Radio. Tauren Wells is the former frontman of GRAMMY® Award-nominated band Royal Tailor, father, songwriter, worship academy founder, multi-instrumentalist, and performer, and his deep desire to draw people closer to their identity in the Lord is apparent in all he pursues. Tauren Wells recently finished a tour with Lionel Richie and Mariah Carey and Chris Tomlin’s Worship Night in America tour, and is currently touring with some of largest bands in Christian music. Despite all of the accolades, Tauren Wells isn’t making music to gain notoriety – “I feel called to call greatness out of people,” Wells shares. His focus of speaking the love of God to others through his many talents is apparent on his most recent release, Hills and Valleys, which came out June 23, 2017 and was nominated for a GRAMMY Award for Best Contemporary Christian Music Album. He also currently leads worship regularly at Elevation Church and Lakewood Church.
