Hello Pinoylifers (and the brand new army of haters – thanks for the traffic). 2009 is starting off strong for Pinoy stand-up comedy. Jo Koy had his first hour long special air on Comedy Central in early January and on January 19, Edwin San Juan’s SlantEd Comedy show had its first Showtime taping that featured Edwin, Bernadette Balagtas, Joey Guila, Dan Gabriel, Ron Josol, and Paul Ogata.
Here are some photos from the January 19th SlantEd Comedy show taping at the El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles, CA.
2009 is starting off big for Pinoy comedians. First we get the Jo Koy special on Comedy Central and now Ed San Juan’s “SlantEd” Comedy Show is getting taped for Showtime. The show is part of the LOL Comedy Festival and the line up is loaded with some of the best in Pinoy stand-up comedy today.
It all takes place on Monday, Jan. 19 (MLK Holiday) at 3:30 p.m at the El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles. Tickets are $15 for general admission and $25 for VIP (not including all the fees Ticketmaster and the El Rey tack on… those bastards).
And to Ed, Bernadette, Ron, Joey and Dan, the folks behind this site are proud of you. Congrats on achieving this milestone! See you guys on the 19th.
