Some of comedy’s most seasoned veterans and next big things wring laughs from audiences during gut-busting standup performances at Tacoma Comedy Club. To celebrate two years of tickling ribs, the venue stuffs its fall calendar with a slew of popular faces from TV. On Tacoma Comedy Club’s birthday weekend, Carlos Alazraqui (October 12–14) takes the stage for five rounds of raucous standup and improv. Although some may recognize Carlos for voicing and outliving the “Yo Quiro Taco Bell” chihuahua, comedy fans know him best as Officer James Garcia, the bumbling gun fanatic he played for years on Comedy Central’s Reno 911!. In his standup act, Carlos keeps laughs rolling with anecdotes and wild voices delivered with ease and a steady aim Officer Garcia never had.
Multitalented funnyman and seasoned trumpeter Lamont Ferguson (October 19–20), one of the few comics to open for greats such as George Carlin and Bill Cosby, ignites guffaws with his cranky musings, before 26-year standup veteran Brad Upton (October 25–27) milks gallons of laughs out of his life experiences and longtime marriage. In a very special engagement, Chelsea Peretti (November 1–3), seen on Louie and voted one of Variety’s 10 Comics to Watch, proves that TV writers can be funny too. A highly respected scribe for NBC’s Parks and Recreation and The Sarah Silverman Program, Chelsea lets her gift of wordplay shine in her snide and snarky live act. On Wednesdays, open mic nights bring emerging voices to the stage to test out fresh material so that audiences can get a sneak peek at the laugh-masters of tomorrow and the microphone models of today.
