Ward Anderson & Carlos Valencia Set for Aurora Comedy Nights, 6/20
Aurora Comedy Nights celebrates another great year of club comedy performances on the square in downtown Lawrenceville as headliner Ward Anderson is joined by Carlos Valencia and host Katie Causey. See them all in one big show in the "big room" on Aurora Theatre's Mainstage Friday, June 20 at 8:00 PM. It will be like attending an HBO Comedy Special, live and right in your backyard.

Carlos Valencia's first time on stage was at a contest where the prize was a week-long booking on a cruise ship. He lost categorically and is still not allowed on a cruise ship; but since then he has performed in over 30 states from Washington to Florida in comedy clubs, colleges, theatres, casinos, boats, taverns, watering holes, churches, diners, coffee shops, prisons, military bases, bowling centers, back alleys, redneck bars, punk rock clubs, hip-hop joints, and heavy metal dives-with some of the biggest names in comedy-and in some of the most prestigious comedy festivals in the country. A veteran touring comic based out of Atlanta, Georgia Valencia's quirky caché has made him a real crowd-pleaser. Carlos's website: http://carlosvcomedy.com/
