PIONEER UNDERGROUND & LEX NIGHTCLUB
You never know what can happen when you say “hell yes” to a dare. That’s exactly what Will C. did 25 years ago at The World Famous Comedy Store in La Jolla, CA. It was then that the comedy bug bit and latched onto him, and he never shook it loose going forward. Since then, he has toured around the US and Canada, offering “quick wit, over the top goofiness, and the ability to relate to his audiences. He has also been writing and acting, and killing it in comedy competitions across the country. Click HERE for a video of Will C doing his thing! For tickets to see him live at one of his five stand-up performances this weekend, visit RenoTahoeComedy.com.
