Tommy T's Open Mic Finals - Round 1, Group 2 - Tonight!
This competition brings together past winners of individual open mic nights to go head-to-head in elimination competition. Last Monday night it all got rolling, with the first five comics (Jason Tate, Willie Mac, Aaron Shine, Ty Anderson and Jennifer Rutherford) hitting the stage to do their best 10-minute sets and hand their fates over to audience voting. Willie, Ty and Jennifer pulled it out, so those three are advancing to the semifinals in a couple of weeks. In the meantime, groups two and three need to go up and face a little comedic natural selection.
Group two is another tough one, bringing together local favorites Delfino Reyes, Joey Gonzales, Boogee, Raj Dutta, Mike Sinclair and The Nasty Polack. They each get their 10 to make it happen. With this group, it's anybody's guess. Should be a hell of a showdown.
I, for one, will be there (I'm in group three the week after! Gotta know who I may face in the next round!), cheering these dudes on and soaking up their comic funk as always. If you're in Rancho with nothing to do on a Monday, pop in and enjoy the show!
