Headliner: Vince Valenzuela
Growing up in the “barrio burbs” of North Seattle as “the youngest punching bag” of five kids, he remembers being the only kid with a Mexican name for 100’s of miles. 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.”
