Cap City Comedy Club welcomes comedian and actor Joey Diaz to the stage this Thursday, May 2 through Saturday, May 4.

Diaz—who was born in Cuba—was raised in New Jersey and brings that Jersey flair to the comedic stage. He got his comedic start in prison—where he was serving time for aggravated robbery and kidnapping—when the projector broke during movie night and he decided to take the stage. After being released from jail Diaz started doing open mikes in Los Angeles where he became known for his tough-talking act.

He has been seen in small roles like those in Analyze That as well as bigger ones like his character Jhoey in the sitcom My Name Is Earl.

Diaz released his stand-up comedy album It’s Either You or the Priest last year. He also has his own—quite popular—podcast “The Church Of What’s Happening Now” in which he discusses thought-provoking topics and provides an uncensored opinion.

Tickets to see him this weekend at Cap City Comedy Club are $17 for general admission and $21 for reserved seating. All shows are ages 18 and up so if you want to have a rough and tough jolly-good-time make sure to get your tickets soon!
