March of Dimes Comedy Fundraiser with Jose Barrientos
- Jose’s backstory: The bold and wily former Army soldier got his start deploying laughter to troops on US Army Radio before chasing his calling as an observational standup with a penchant for pranks
- How he got YouTube’s attention: After pulling off an elaborate four-month-long ruse in a city college public speech class, in which he pretended to be a foreign immigrant to make a point about cultural stereotypes, clips of his shenanigans went viral, leading to over 6 millions views and a segment on ABC’s 20/20
- The good cause: Proceeds from this outdoor standup fundraiser benefit the March of Dimes efforts to improve the health of infants
The promoters behind Valley Comedy draw from a rib-tickling lineup of local comedians and touring comedians who perform in monthly shows at 1933 Prohibition in Bakersfield, monthly shows at the Aviator Casino in Delano, and bimonthly shows in Fresno. Valley Comedy also provides entertainment for public and private events, dispatching standup comedians to fundraisers, charity events, corporate events and parties throughout the Central Valley.
