Wowza! September Shows

September is gonna be an action packed month! I'm super excited to open up for Michelle Wolf for four shows at The Stage! I've also got my new Comedy Bingo open mic every Thursday at Side Effex, where the crowd plays BINGO based on the comedians' sets to win drinks and prizes. We have a stacked line up for our First Friday's Comedy Contest, where 10 comedians battle it out and the audience decides the winners. I'm the host for First Friday's contest, but this month I'll get to compete in another contest for Buck D's Comedy Competion.

On top of all the stand up, I've got a couple of Dinner Detective, interactive murder-mystery-comedy shows. It's not your normal dinner theater show, so you should definitely hit one of those up for something you've probably never experienced before. At Barney Lopez's Birthday Banger, I'll be performing songs from the smash hit, "Tony Hawk Pro Skater" games. All that's happening in Albuquerque and Bernallilo, New Mexico, but I'll also be hitting up Denver to do what I can to help "The Trash King" Ray Basura win the Slave to the Death Match tournament. If you've every seen clips of Cactus Jack VS Terry Funk, throwing each other through barb-wire, C-4 explosives covered tables, that's what I'm expecting at this bound-to-be-bloody pro wrestling tournament.

Come laugh at me, rap with me, or wrestling me, this September!

First Friday's Comedy Contest - BATTLE OF THE SEXes


”Women aren’t funny.” This is a phrase female comedians are sick of hearing, and on Friday, September 1st some of Albuquerque’s funniest ladies are marching forth to prove the naysayers wrong in the first ever 1st Friday’s Comedy Contest: Battle of the Sexes. 1st Friday’s (formally 3rd Thursday’s) Comedy Contest has been taking place at various Albuquerque venues for nearly nine years, the past three of which have been spent at Tractor Brewery in Wells Park. Each month the audience is invited to watch some of the city’s veteran and up-and-coming stand up comics take the stage as they slang jokes in hopes of winning the audience’s vote for that month’s funniest comedian. Over the past year, more and more female comics have been taking the crown. For this show not only will we crown the top three individual winners, but the 5 women and 5 men’s scores will be tallied together to see which sex will have the bragging rights.

Hosted by
Rusty Rutherford
Featuring 10 of Albuquerque’s funniest comedians …. Matt Peterson, Caitlin Minton, Danger K. Varoz, Mary Byrd, Keith Breckenridge, Kendra Jean, Axiao Daniels, Ann Gora, Greg Ziomek and Dawn Schary.

Come see my first comedy routine reborn!

This Saturday, November 3rd, I will be performing the comedy routine that started my whole spiral into the psychotic world of stand up!

Myself, along with a fist full more top-notch 'burque comedians will be performing at The Box Performance Space for a one-night-only show, properly titled "Comedian: Orgins."  What makes this show different from your average stand up gig, is that each comic will start their act by performing the first 5 minutes of comedy they ever did, followed by 5 minutes of our most recent material.

If you're an old Sandia Matador, you'll definitely want to come feel some nostalgia at this event, and if not, come see the twisted act that got me out of the bleachers and onto the stage (and eventually suspended from school for being too wild for the administration to handle)
