Michael O'Connell Joins Big Al's Big Ass Comedy Show Wednesday Night at Punch Line Sacramento

California's comedy show sensation - Big Al's Big Ass Comedy Show - is coming to the Punch Line in Sacramento this Wednesday, September 29th, at 8:00 PM.  And Michael O'Connell is coming with it.

O'Connell will join other comics such as Mike Bettencourt, Alex Fuchs and the show's creator himself, Al Gonzales, for a night of razor-sharp alternative comedy on the Punch Line stage. 

Big Al's Big Ass Comedy Show has been a touring hit from one side of California to the next, regularly selling out venues and delighting crowds.  The show completes its performance at the Improv in Hollywood tonight before heading back to Northern California.

The show originated in The Bay Area, is produced by the likeably funny Big Al Gonzales, and features the best in Latino/Alternative comedy. Big Al Gonzales has been doing comedy for 7 years. He has become a well know fixture in the Northern California comedy scene. He has appeared in commercials and local television. Big Al started out his comedy career doing improvisational comedy where his troupe (Big City Improv) was noted as Best Of The Bay 2002, after which he broke away and went solo, doing stand-up comedy.

Tickets are available online or at the Sacramento Punch Line box office.

I'm at the Rose Room this Wednesday, 09/15/10

Prepare yourself, Roseville!  The Tommy T's alums are coming to your side of town to burn this mother down!

This Wednesday night (the 15th), I'll be reunited with two of my fellow finalists from the Tommy T's Finals championship round - Kristen Frisk and Willie Mac (we tried to get Joey Gonzalez as well to get the whole final four, but alas, he'll be out of town) - as we bring the funny to the Rose Room in old town Roseville.

Headlining for this show is the legendary Sac comic and comedy instructor, Del Van Dyke (also a Tommy T's alum), and a guest set will be coming from local Roseville comedian Brian Jagger.  This is the second comedy showcase to go on at the Rose Room, and the first one nearly filled the house, so you might want to call ahead for a reservation.

The show starts at 8:00 PM and the cover is $5.  If you do the math, that's only $1 per comedian!  Wotta steal!  It's going to be a great night of comedy and cocktails, and we'd all love to see you there.  So drop in and let us entertain!

Again, that's at:

Jerry Lewis Labor Day Telethon Appearance

Heads up, Sac area peoples!  I'll be on TV for a good cause on Labor Day!

I'll be on cam on the local broadcast of the Jerry Lewis MDA Labor Day Telethon on Monday, September 6th, between 3:30 PM and 5:00 PM on KQCA Channel 58.  This'll be the final leg of the Telethon broadcast before sign-off, so it'll be crunch time to get those last dollars from helpful viewers.  They've got me set up to do some comedy, and probably some on-mic other stuff.  I'll find out when I get there for sure, but I'm up for whatever they've got for me.

I've been watching the Telethon my whole life (having MDA myself, in case you didn't know...), and have always wondered when I'd get my chance to get on the other side of the camera for the event.  That time has come.  So tune in and be a part of it...and take the opportunity to pick up the phone, pledge a little money, and help out a fantastic cause.  I already can't thank you enough!

See you on Channel 58!
