Headliner: Vince Valenzuela
Labeled “The Last of the Mohicans,” Vince was born into the clashing cultures of a Mexican/American father and an English/ German chain-smoking mother. After playing baseball his first two years of college, Vince transferred to Central Washington University to get his degree in business. He saw an ad on campus for a talent show and decided to do stand up. The rules were; “6 minutes, no profanity.” With 300 people in attendance, Mr. Vince broke both rules and was disqualified, but fell in love with stand up. Two years later, he moved back to Seattle and embarked on a career in entertainment…..soon people were paying to hear him, and as they say, “the rest is history.”
Opener: Mike Devore
Mike Devore is the kind of comic who makes you feel like you’re watching one of your naturally funny friends entertain a crowd. He’s a Navy vet with a heart and a notebook of gold, who has become a San Diego comedy staple. Mike is a rare mix of conviviality and high-energy, pedal-to-the-floor delivery. His friendly intensity, sort of like a camp counselor’s, pairs well with his gently self-deprecating perspective. He’s mostly a happy camper, but can also push buttons when he wants to. Unlike many comics, though, he never mashes them.
