Yelm’s 507 Taproom East to host stand-up comedian Zane Lamprey in April

Humorist has appeared in series on Hulu, Amazon Prime


People who enjoy stand-up comedy or local beer can mark their calendars for April at Yelm’s 507 Taproom East as stand-up comedian Zane Lamprey is set to perform at the tap and filling station. 

Lamprey will make stops in New Mexico, Colorado and Bellingham, Washington, before arriving in Yelm for his two shows on April 20 and April 21. He’ll conclude his tour in Washington with stops in Ellensburg, Spokane, Longview and Seattle, with a show in Tigard, Oregon, prior to his show in the Emerald City. 

507 Taproom and Filling Station owner Bill DeVore said tickets for the April 20 show have already sold out. Tickets for the April 21 show are still available but are selling fast. Those can be purchased on or on, after typing and entering “Zane Lamprey” into the website’s search engine. 

“We’re really excited about these two shows, as a business, but also knowing him, not personally but professionally, for as long as we have,” DeVore said. “I think it’s a great piece we can bring into Yelm that’s something different. We’re all excited about it.”

Lamprey’s repertoire includes performances on Comedy Central, VH1 and Nickelodeon. The comedian was also a cast member on MTV’s Damage Control and host of VH1’s Motormouth.  

“Zane has a show on Amazon and Hulu right now with stand up. He’s also done shows called Three Sheets, Drinking Made Easy, Chug and Four Sheets,” DeVore said. “That night, we’ll move all the tables out of the building and bring all the chairs in, and he’s going to do a comedy show for about three hours.” 

DeVore said the Taproom has tried to get Lamprey to perform a stand-up routine at his bar before. After tickets for the April 20 show sold out quickly, Lamprey and the Taproom agreed to have a second showing on April 21. 

“We have watched Zane for probably the last eight years, between his television shows and live comedy sets,” DeVore said. “We reached out to him every time we went to see him perform, and said ‘we could do this.’ His last show we saw, last year at Seven Seas in Tacoma, they said ‘we want to come.’ ” 

Following Lamprey’s performance at the 507 Taproom and Filling Station, the bar and restaurant will host a jeep show and fundraiser from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, April 27. Registration for the event begins at 9 a.m. and costs $10 to enter. 

Raffle tickets for several different drawings cost $5 each, and all proceeds from the event will go toward Camp Patriot in Montana. The organization works with law enforcement and military personnel dealing with post-traumatic stress disorder.
