This month Rudy hosts a Friday Night Special!
If you know anything about me, know this: I luuuuvz me some comedy. I’ve been hanging around the Ice House in Pasadena since I was 18. (Dang! That’s twenty years!) I’ve met those with names like Lopez, Garcia, Mencia, Rodriguez, Iglesias and others like Lampaneli, Bodden and Tucker. But there is one name that has always been a constant, Rudy Moreno.
Rudy has been hosting the best comedy nights in town for close to ten years. Every Wednesday at the Ice House in Pasadena and every Thursday at the Commerce Casino.
Rudy and I go back like ELAC!! Not that he went there. I was a student there in 1994 when I saw him and Gilbert Esquivel perform at the ASU. I’ve been a fan since!
Rudy started his career in show business at age 13 , when he formed his first ( of many ) garage bands, he then went on after high school to be a radio disc jockey , also working as a DJ in many So. California nightclubs. After years of performing as a mobile DJ, he was approached by Rudy Salas , the leader of the famed rock group TIERRA and was asked if he would consider doing stand up, and that he would let him get started by opening for the band at their gigs, the response was huge . From there Rudy started to open for several different acts over time , including Ice Cube, Natalie Cole , Los Lobos , Lynyrd Skynrd , and the legendary Smokey Robinson to name just a few . (more…)
