Joey Diaz with Mike Stanley

Saturday, May 13 - Doors 7pm - $25 (sold out) 

Born in Havana, Cuba and raised in North Bergen, NJ, Joey 'Coco' Diaz has quickly become one of the most sought after actors and comedians in the entertainment industry today. His love of storytelling is reflected in each role he takes: whether it is on film or on stage, his passion for entertaining and delighting audiences shines through every performance. This winter, Diaz can next be seen starring as 'Mikey' opposite Sylvester Stallone, Robert De Niro, Kevin Hart, and Kim Basinger in the highly anticipated feature film "Grudge Match" (Warner Bros.).

Diaz's start in comedy began while serving a short stint at a correctional facility in Denver, CO in 1988. "Each Wednesday we would watch movies on the projector, but sometimes it would break," he shares, "so I would get up and do stand up to fill the time." Learning he had the skills to make an audience laugh, he pursued comedy after his release and began performing at an assortment of comedy clubs in the area. While he was touring as a working comic, he began acting in a variety television and film roles. You may recognize him from his appearances in "The Mentalist", "Children's Hospital", "My Name is Earl", or "General Hospital" - to name a few. On the film front, Diaz has held roles in "The Longest Yard", "Spider Man 2", "Smiley Face", and "Taxi", among others.

In 2013, Diaz continues to perform stand up and act, while also staying on top of the new media move in podcasting. Currently, Diaz hosts his bi-weekly podcast "The Church of What's Happening Now," which ranks among some of the most highly downloaded podcasts online. He is also a regular guest on Joe Rogan's popular podcast "The Joe Rogan Experience."

On the comedy front, Diaz continues to tour and perform at the biggest comedy clubs in the country. His comedy specials in "The Testicle Testaments" have sold thousands of downloads, and have even made it to the Billboard Top 100. Diaz's raw style of comedy is highlighted on television with recurring sketch roles on "Stand Up Revolution" and "Jimmy Kimmel Live." Later this year, Diaz will release his new DVD/CD special - which will surely top the charts once more.

In December of 2016, Joey released his first ever hour comedy special titled "Socially Unacceptable". Sociably Unacceptable debuted on NBC Universal's digital platform Seeso and quickly has become one of the biggest hits on the platform. On January 27th, 2017, "Joey Diaz: Socially Unacceptable" will be released on iTunes, Apple Music, Google Play, Spotify, and all digital audio retailers. 



Mike Stanley:

WRY, WITTY, CUNNING, AND CRASS Detroit native Mike Stanley is all of these things, but none, when put on paper, quite manage to serve the justice dealt by Stanley onstage. Yeah, he's pretty hilarious, but more than just coarse anecdotes about life and sex,there's an enviable amount of heart and warmth behind Stanley's humor.

Given his penchant toward brutal honesty, spiced up with a healthy dose of insatiable wit, it's not difficult to see why Stanley was named" Best Chicago Stand-up Comedian" in a People's Choice poll done by the Chicago Reader.

Originally hailing from Detroit, and after spending a decade honing his craft in the Windy City of Chicago, Mike has spent the past year and a half in Los Angeles where he is a regular at the Hollywood Laugh Factory. He tours constantly, both domestically and internationally. Don't miss out on an incredible opportunity to catch the man in action - this high level of killer stand-up is too remarkable to sit out.
