Stand-up impersonator is all-over-the-place funny
Thirty years later, she's an acclaimed stand-up comic and established Hollywood actress. Her credits include roles as a cast member on "MADtv” as well as a recurring character on "Reno 911!" She's also a headliner on The Latin Comedy Jam, a touring act that hits the Kiva Auditorium on Saturday, June 30.
Smokes and Jokes
Stand-up at the hookah bar
If you're looking to do some heavy lounging and hearty laughing tonight, check out the Smokes and Jokes Stand-up Showcase. Terrene Hookah has a lot of pillows, smooshy chairs and other stuff you'd like to loll around on. The establishment allows in customers 18 years and over, but I have yet to see a giant crowd of dingbats wearing idiotic clothing flitting around in front, so you're probably safe from that. Smoke a hookah, play some cards and even surf the web if you want. And hear some jokes.
These fine comics will be performing:
Rusty Rutherford, who has performed across America, including on NBC's Last Comic Standing. He is known as a "comedic genius." By his mom.
Matt Peterson, who appeared on NBC’s Last Comic Standing and played a lead role in the comedic film Bigfoot Election.
Curt Fletcher who won the Great Southwest Laff Off in 2003, beating out 21 other comics. In 2007, he advanced to the semifinals of HBO's Lucky 21 contest. He also advanced twice to the semifinals of the New Faces contest at Comedy Works.
James Morrow has performed on multiple occasions at Terrene’s 3rd Thursdays Comedy Contest and is a regular at Hallenbrick Brewery’s Young, Dumb and Full Comedy show. Morrow can also be seen Saturday nights on My50 TV’s Duke City Comedy League.
The show starts at 7 p.m. and $10 gets you admission and bottomless hookah!
Terrene Hookah is at 106 Vassar SE.

Who Is Marc Maron?
Comic returns to his hometown for one stand-up night
Marc Maron isn’t famous, but he should be. The stand-up comedian and ex-Albuquerquean has appeared on “Late Night With Conan O’Brien” three-dozen times and “The Late Show With David Letterman” four times, and he’s had two of his own half-hour specials on Comedy Central. He was one of the voices behind the now-defunct “Morning Sedition” radio show on Air America. Plus, he was the irate promoter in Almost Famous (an appropriate title for Maron) who orders his minions to “Lock the gates!” on the protagonists’ hurtling tour bus.
