Speakeasy Presents: Flo Hernandez Comedy, Every 3rd Friday
For all of you comic fiends who need a new place to get a good laugh, I’ve got the perfect opportunity for you! Starting next Friday, February 19th, stand-up comedy is coming back to the Warehouse district in the form of Flo Hernandez’s monthly residency at Speakeasy, the 5th and Congress hot spot for live music, great drinks, unbeatable view, and (now) hilarious comedy.
As a Dallas implant in Austin, Flo Hernandez has been hailed as one of the top up-and-coming Latino comics, drawing comparisons to show host George Lopez and the late, but great, Freddy Soto. Growing up as the class clown, Hernandez ultimately abandoned his corporate suit job after realizing his passion was life on the stage. He took the risk, and now, having played numerous shows across the US, Hernandez’s high energy stand-up that overrides all cultural, ethical, and economic boundaries has earned him a solid reputation. He is well-known for family portrait, Tex-Mex cultural icons, and garage sale humor, especially in his “Peleta Man”, “Garage Sale”, and “Taco Salad” routines. And thankfully for us, Hernandez’s residency at Speakeasy kicks off next week, for all of us Austinites to enjoy.
Entrance is $10, but for uber special VIP service, it’s $15. The show starts at 8pm, and if you get there early enough you can enjoy some yummy food from a special menu provided by Latin/Caribbean infused restaurant, Cuba Libre:
guacamole with tortilla chips
