After successful runs in Chicago and DC, this marvelous and spiritually invigorating show is on the road.

This Pennsylvanian-born comic, most famous for The Roast Of Donald Trump is a handsome dark devil who takes no prisoners at his live shows - or indeed his recorded ones currently setting fire to Netflix across the world. Making his name on the Comedy Central Roasts, he became a worthy successor to roast king Greg Giraldo who passed away in 2010. A whipsmart misanthrope, he was the first stand-up comic to perform on Jimmy Kimmel LIVE, and continues to tour the late-night TV circuit in addition to his live shows.

November 2, 2018

Conjuring the romance and free-spiritedness of gypsy music with six nylon strings, Ukranian classical guitarist Estas Tonne is the modern day answer to the free-wheeling, travelling troubadours of old. The charismatic guitarist fuses together classical structures, Flamenco, Latin and electronic techniques with the music of his homeland, interweaving each note with a sense of mediative reflection and moments of unbridled joy.

With his wild tangle of curly black hair and a boyish, mischievous grin permanently on his face, Felipe Esparza cuts a unique figure in the world of stand up. Winner of the 2010 season of Last Comic Standing, the Mexican-born, East LA-raised funnyman overcame the poverty, gang violence and drug addiction of his youth using comedy as an emotional outlet. Don't miss the hilarious dark horse during his Bad Decisions 2018 Tour this Summer!

The elegant Balboa Theatre has seen many uses over the years, from movie theater to housing for the US Navy during WWII. Beginning in the 1980s, the building was closed for twenty years and threatened with demolition, until a multi-million dollar renovation reopened it as a community arts center and theater space in 2008. It now hosts dozens of concerts and comedians every year.
