Felipe Esparza: Live and Uncut
Fans of Im not fat, Im fluffy comedian Gabriel Iglesias have heard him tell stories about his escapades with his wild-man friend Felipe. Now Houston audiences can hear those tales from Felipe Esparza himself when the comic takes the stage at the Houston Improv during his Live & Uncut tour. Most recently Esparza won the Last Comic Standing 2010 title, not an easy feat considering Esparzas confrontational humor is as wild and wooly as his hair. A product of east Los Angeles, Esparza was known early on for his catch phrase, Whats up, fool? (Its a phrase fans still shout at him on the street.) Esparza isnt limiting himself to being a stand-up (or a sidekick); hes worked on several film projects, including with Paul Rodriguez and Talia Shire in the film The Deported. 8 p.m. Houston Improv, 7620 Katy Freeway. For information, call 713-333-8800 or visit www.improvhouston.com. $20.
Wed., Jan. 26, 8 p.m., 2011
