A Lubbock funny man continues his very serious quest to promote local comedians after returning from a competition in Los Angeles.
"(It's) kind of like a Last Comic Standing which was hosted by Gabriel Iglesias in the Jon Lovitz Comedy Club in Hollywood," said local comic Al Perez.
Perez shared photos of his trip where he got to hang out with Gabriel Iglesias, better known as "Fluffy," and eat doughnuts. Perez made it to the semi finals.
Back here in Lubbock, Perez says local comics struggle the fact that Lubbock is known for music -- not comedy. "As far as comedy, it's not in as big a demand as music. But we're hoping to get there," he said.
Now that he's back home he's trying to make folks aware that Lubbock only has one comedy club. Joel's Comedy Club is located at 2405 34th Street (close to University) at the Cats Theater.
