It was a cold summer night in the northside of Downtown Los Angeles at 9 p.m. as I walked into the Cathedral High School auditorium. The room was full of alumni from years past. On stage was my friend comedian Rudy Moreno bringing talking about, “Why what happen?” A hilarious bit about growing up as a latino child in Lincoln Heights and questioning everything your parents had to say two months prior he had requested for me to perform at this fundraiser for him and I was happy to oblige. The procedure meant to help the students for seeking funds to go to college. It was very heartwarming to see the turnout as I walked into that Auditorium. There was deliciously catered BBQ ribs, mixed drinks and silent auction items displayed throughout the back. It felt great to be a part of this. Rudy introduced the next comic, looked me in the eye, gave me a big smile, shook my hand and told me I was closing out the show. In the past, that might have had me worrying and second-guessing myself but luckily I’ve had a few years of experience under my belt and I was ready for the challenge. Most of the show was nothing but crowd work and this crowd had so much to offer seeing as how they’ve been there since about 6 p.m. the show is over and a few people started clapping some of them even started getting up. All in all it was a great time had by all. I’m so glad and I could be a part of such a noble cause. Had the best time sharing the stage with hilarious comedians like Lamont B Sharpton, Rudy Moreno, Andre Kelly, Retha Jones and George Wang. Huge thanks to Cathedral High School for allowing us to be part of this event.
