Our 6th anniversary is also our grand opening at our new location. On February 25th we open with a standup comedy show. This will be our fourth standup comedy show since state restrictions. Four comics will grace our new theater space that was converted from a boiler room. They are Chris Cruz, Karla Murphy, Eli Trichon, and Trent Babb.
Headlining is Chris Cruz. He began his comedic journey in 2009, taking first place at the Tachi palace Central Valley comedy competition. This would set the pace of his comedy career as he would go on to play in all the major comedy clubs California has to offer (Laugh Factory, Comedy Store, Improv) while opening for some major players in the comedy world (Pablo Francisco, Greg Fitzsimmons, Jim Breuer) crafting his own high energy performance style that audiences all over can’t get enough of.
Karla Murphy is a fresh face in the Fresno, California comedy scene having first starting her career with heartbreak and an absent therapist. Thankfully, a comedy open mic was waiting. When Murphy is not cracking jokes about modern dating or her debaucherous lifestyle she can be found watching Tik Toks or napping.
Eli Trichon is a New York City based comedian/actor. His credits include Marvelous Mrs. Maisel on HULU, The Stand Comedy Club, Infinite Jokes, NCIS, Criminal Minds, and was part of the Rubber City Comedy Festival.
Then there is Trent Babb. For over 9 years, Trent Babb has made crowds laugh as a shameless goofball and passionate performer. His humor is based on his insecurities, being husband and father. Influenced by Jim Carrey and Brian Regan, Trent is a larger than life performer that gives his all on stage. He is a proud family man that doesn’t care for drama, he gets enough of that at home.
