Arts & Entertainment: Local comedian

  • Climbing to the top after last year’s second place win in this category, Pat Fudgin’ Hinson takes inspiration for his comedy from his life. Like working at a tattoo shop and performing in an all-male dance troupe. We’re not sure if both of those are true. He’s performed at the Get Down, The Magnetic Field and, recently, as part of Laugh Your Asheville Off. — A.M.
