Friday, April 19, 8 p.m., Joey “Coco” Diaz takes the stage. Sometimes it takes a huge movie role or a part in a popular television series to put a stand-up comedian on the radar; with Diaz it was a #1 comedy album on iTunes and Billboard.
Diaz has appeared in numerous films and television shows but his storytelling on the extremely popular podcast, “The Joe Rogan Experience” really showcased one of the funniest comedians working today.
Diaz‘ R-rated outlook on life will get you howling in your seats but that’s what a good comedian is supposed to do. What makes him special is his ability to tell a story so that regardless of the subject matter, you’re still laughing. Whether it’s lighting a hooker’s wig on fire, or attacking a nun in the 5th grade, you’ll be cheering for him. Tickets are $20.00.
And don’t forget to catch the free Outdoor Comedy Stage on Lincoln Road at Euclid Avenue, nightly from Thursday through Saturday at 9PM. Always a highlight of the Festival, this year you can catch rising stars Michael Che, Chris Distefano, Sean Donnelly, Sarah Tiana and Brooks Wheelan.
Tickets go on sale Friday, March 1 / 10 a.m.
