I am a comic who produces comedy for the local communities, born and raised in East LA. City Terrace.
I worked my way up scrubbing floors to the film set of "My Name Is Earl" to working in the film business.
I started a room in East LA called Garfonos Comedy Frat House so comics can get ample stage time and not feel pressured to pay to pay. Then the Speak Easy Comedy Lounge in West Covina, where the bar from every show was donated to charity .
It has grown to The Eagle Rock Lounge and a private bigger venue in Covina where private events are held and the comics eat and get paid in these hard times.
The community gets free comedy and the local businesses get business.
Since then, we now have a venue in Vegas with the help of others, working with fellow radio stations, producers and headliners who tour.
We'll be starting a room with the producers of Refried Comedy in the coming weeks.
For now, we do The Eagle Rock Lounge every Tuesday at 10 pm. There's ample street parking and free admission. And, there is a bar!
See you there!
