Yes Comedy Showcase with Patti Vasquez

Laugh, cry…and then laugh until you cry as you see Patti Vasquez at YES Cinema.  Patti calls herself a Latina supermom, a headliner and breadwinner.  She is the current host of “Pretty Late with Patti Vasquez” on WGN radio.

Patti Vasquez, a Chicago native, got her start over a decade ago at Zanies Comedy Club. Since then she has gone on to perform three hit solo shows- “Pregnant Party Girl: From Stoli’s to Stirrups,” “Mamacita: Tales of a Diaper Diva” and “Tequila and Shamrocks: Every Flower Has Her Roots” written and performed by Patti for theater audiences. She has appeared in comedy festivals including HBO’s Las Vegas Comedy Festival, the Chicago Comedy Festival and Marshall’s Women in Comedy Festival in New York. As a regular guest on the wildly popular Bob and Tom radio show, Patti reaches audiences around the world. She is currently touring cities across the country. Her unique perspective on family and relationships has been described as  ”comedy with a heart.”

She tackles social issues with a cheerful edginess that appeals to audiences of all backgrounds. Her hilarious take on the foibles of the human experience keeps people coming back to see what she has to say about relationships, pop culture and random encounters with strangers who have no idea she’s cataloging their ridiculous behavior to share with audiences all over the world.

Lewis Black says, “Patti is simply marvelous.” Bill Maher called her, “The funniest woman in comedy since Carol Burnett.”

Rated G for all ages. Beer and Wine available.  Doors open at 7pm for the 8pm show. Tickets are $20 (advanced) and $25 (door). Tickets available at YES Cinema and the Lincoln-Central Neighborhood Family Center during operating hours, and by phone at 812.379.1630
