[ARCHIVED] Comedy with Liz Grant & Friends Sept 19

Comedy with Liz Grant Returns Sept 19
Special Birthday edition brings back Ellis Rodriguez


On September 19 bring out the birthday candles for a special edition of Comedy with Liz Grant & Friends as Liz Grant celebrates her birthday by making others laugh. Her guest and headliner, Ellis Rodriguez returns to perform on the virtual stage.  Ellis is one of the up and coming stand-up acts on the scene today.  His commanding and playful style makes him a memorable comedian.  Former United States Marine with a WebMD diagnosis of Middle Kid Syndrome, he is the funniest out of 9 raised by immigrant parents from Panama.  His use of diversity in his life experiences establishes rapport with any audience.  He has been seen on Comedy Central’s “Up Next,” Laugh’s on FOX, Kevin Hart’s ‘Hart of the City’ and Shaq’s All-Star Comedy Jam.  He has also won the San Francisco International Comedy Competition and was a finalist at the Las Vegas World Series of Comedy.  He currently has one comedy album “Go Be a Clown” which is available on Amazon. 

Being a birthday show, Liz Grant will also be your host and featured act this month. During her career, Liz has opened for comics like for Dana Carvey, Robin Williams, and George Lopez.  Nickelodeon and George Carlin both used her comedy writing services on their websites.  Liz blends smart with silly, creating belly laughs, snorts and /or tears.

For show times and ticket information, visit www.danville.ca.gov/vtshows. The show will be held on Zoom and the waiting room will be open approximately 20 minutes prior to the performance.  If you are in a watch party or celebrating a birthday, please email vtboxoffice@danville.ca.gov to receive a birthday/party shout out during the performance. 

Some of the comedians may use mature themes and language in their material; age recommended is 18 and up.
