The crowds energy at last night’s Icehouse Comedy Club show was off the hook! Huge thanks to those of you who came down to watch me share the stage with a hilarious lineup of comics. #TheGreatOmar #WhipeFace #Magia #Comedy #Magic #IceHouseComedyClub
One of the funnest things you can do in Los Angeles is indoor skydiving. If you’re afraid of heights but want to Thrill a free falling at 150 miles per hour. I recommend making an appointment. The staff was incredibly hospitable and friendly. This location was at Universal CityWalk. Sure we had a bunch of people staring at us but that’s part of the fun. I know this is not Magic but it is Magic related. Also it really does feel like you’re flying.
Tonight I had a lot of fun sharing the stage will legendary comedian George Wallace inside the Comedy and Magic Club in Hermosa Beach. Also on the bill was headliner Kevin Nealon. Both of them had me cracking up inside of the Green Room.
Journal Entry from when I was 9 years old talking about my first time watching magic on Television.
“Omar Covarrubias June 3rd 1993
Today I couldn’t buy fireworks because my mom did not want to buy me fireworks. Then we went to go see if my dad was home he wasn’t so we went to my aunt’s house because he told us that he would be there but when we got there he wasn’t there so we just stood there for 5 or 6 hours then we were going to go to Las Vegas but something was wrong with the van it was heating up so we decided not to go so we stood. I was looking at the television program about magic but I couldn’t do it but then they said they’re selling the video I asked my mom for it but she said no then that’s when I started to write on you.”
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.
